Basis of Presentation
The accompanying interim unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. These statements should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021. There were no significant changes to our significant accounting policies as disclosed in our 2021 Form 10-K. The results of operations for our interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full fiscal year.
All amounts included in the accompanying footnotes to the consolidated financial statements, except share and per share data, are in thousands (000).

Use of Estimates

Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing these consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements, and the reported revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could vary from the estimates that were used.
Risk and Uncertainties
The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant public health concerns as well as economic disruption, uncertainty, and volatility that may negatively affect our business operations and financial results. As a result, if the pandemic or its effects persist or worsen, our accounting estimates and assumptions could be impacted in subsequent interim reports and upon final determination at year-end, and it is reasonably possible such changes could be significant (although the potential effects cannot be estimated at this time). Although the COVID-19 pandemic to date has resulted in supply chain delays of our inventory, higher operating costs and increased shipping costs, among other impacts, we have experienced minimal business interruption as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic can change rapidly we cannot predict how it may disrupt our operations or the full extent of the disruption.

Immaterial out-of-period adjustments

During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company recorded an immaterial out-of-period adjustment that impacted the prior year Consolidated Balance Sheets. The adjustment related to a change in the calculation of operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities. This adjustment corrected an understatement of operating lease right-of-use assets of $1.3 million and an understatement of operating lease liabilities of $1.3 million as of December 31, 2021 during the period ended September 30, 2022. The Company assessed the materiality of this adjustment on the previously issued annual financial statements in accordance with SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 99. The Company concluded that the changes were not material to any of the previously issued consolidated financial statements.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company identified an omission regarding the disclosure of reportable segments under ASC 280 related to the year ended December 31, 2021. During the year ended December 31, 2021 the Company inappropriately reported a single segment, aggregating multiple operating segments. The impact at September 30, 2021 was that $41.0 million of revenue, $13.7 million of gross margin, and $3.1 million of operating income should have been reported as a separate “Distribution and other segment. The Company assessed the materiality of this omission on the previously issued interim and annual consolidated financial statements in accordance with SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 99. The Company concluded that the omission was not material to any of the previously issued consolidated financial statements and began reporting segments results in accordance with ASC 280 on a prospective basis starting with the quarter ended March 31, 2022.
