Basis of Presentation
Basis of Presentation
These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The condensed consolidated financial statements include management estimates and judgments, where appropriate. Management uses estimates to record many items including allowances for expected credit losses, inventory obsolescence, lower of cost or market or net realizable value charges, warranty reserves, sales-related accruals, pension and post-retirement liabilities, workers compensation, general liability and environmental claims and income taxes. When preparing an estimate, management determines the amount based upon the consideration of relevant information. Management may confer with outside parties, including outside counsel. Actual results may differ from these estimates. In the opinion of management, all adjustments of a normal recurring nature have been included to provide a fair statement of the results for the reporting periods presented. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are unaudited. Quarterly results are not necessarily indicative of annual results, primarily due to the seasonality of the business and the possibility of changes in economic conditions between periods.
The accounting policies used in preparing the condensed consolidated financial statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are the same as those used in preparing the Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2020. These statements should therefore be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes that are included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.
All significant intercompany transactions within AFI have been eliminated from the condensed consolidated financial statements.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
Recently Adopted and Recently Issued Accounting Standards
On January 1, 2021 we adopted ASU 2019-12, "Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes." This new standard eliminates certain exceptions in ASC 740 related to the approach for intraperiod tax allocation, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period, guidance on accounting for franchise taxes and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. It also clarifies and simplifies other aspects of the accounting for income taxes. The adoption of the standard did not have a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
There are no additional accounting standards that have been issued and become effective for the Company at a future date which are expected to have a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
