Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that effect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. The more significant estimates relate to the fair value of net assets acquired in business combinations, provision for excess or obsolete inventory, allowance for credit losses, and valuation of contingent consideration liabilities, deferred tax assets, long-lived assets, goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets, and other intangible assets. We base our estimates on historical experience, projected future cash flows, and other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ from these estimates.
