NOTE 1. BASIS OF PREPARATION AND OTHER
Basis of Preparation -The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and therefore do not include all information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. There has been no material change in the information disclosed in the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K of Rollins, Inc. (the “Company”) for the year ended December 31, 2018 other than updates related to Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-02, Leases (ASC 842) as noted below. Accordingly, the quarterly condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures herein should be read in conjunction with the 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
The preparation of interim financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions for the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements. Specifically, the Company makes estimates in its interim condensed consolidated financial statements for the termite accrual, which includes future costs including termiticide life expectancy and government regulations, the insurance accrual, which includes self-insurance and worker’s compensation, inventory adjustments, discounts and volume incentives earned, among others.
In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial results for the interim periods have been made. These adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of results for the entire year.
The Company has only one reportable segment, its pest and termite control business. The Company’s results of operations and its financial condition are not reliant upon any single customer, a few customers, or the Company’s foreign operations.
Three-for-Two Stock Split
All share and per share data presented have been adjusted to account for the three-for-two stock split effective December 10, 2018.
The entire disclosure for the basis of presentation and significant accounting policies concepts. Basis of presentation describes the underlying basis used to prepare the financial statements (for example, US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, Other Comprehensive Basis of Accounting, IFRS). Accounting policies describe all significant accounting policies of the reporting entity.
