|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, 2019 other than updates related to Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (ASC 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments as noted below. Accordingly, the quarterly condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures herein should be read in conjunction with the 2019 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.
The global response to the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered an economic downturn. The pest control industry has been designated as “essential” by the Department of Homeland Security and the Company has been able to remain operational in every part of the world in which it operates. The Company’s consolidated financial statements reflect estimates and assumptions made by management that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and related disclosures as of the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements. The Company considered the impact of COVID-19 on the assumptions and estimates used in preparing the condensed consolidated financial statements, and it was determined that there were some adverse impacts on the Company’s results of the first quarter ended March 31, 2020. The Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition will be impacted by future developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the magnitude of such impacts cannot be determined at this time.
In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial results for the quarter have been made. These adjustments are of a normal recurring nature, but complicated by the uncertainty surrounding the global economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We began to experience this impact in mid-March 2020 and expect it to persist and be more significant in the second quarter of 2020. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2020 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.
The Company reclassified certain prior period amounts in the Statement of Cash Flows from Operating Activities to Financing Activities for payment of contingent consideration to conform to the current period presentation.
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.
