Basis of Presentation and Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Note 1 — Basis of Presentation and Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of Acme United Corporation (the “Company”).  These adjustments are of a normal, recurring nature.  However, the condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the disclosures normally required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America or those normally made in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K. Please refer to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 for such disclosures.  The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011 was derived from the audited consolidated balance sheet as of that date.  The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.  The information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and financial statements and notes thereto, included in the Company’s 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

The Company has evaluated events and transactions subsequent to September 30, 2012 and through the date these condensed consolidated financial statements were included in this Form 10-Q and filed with the SEC.

 

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued a new accounting standard on the presentation of comprehensive income. The new standard requires the presentation of comprehensive income, the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The standard was effective for our quarter ended March 31, 2012. The adoption of this standard was limited to a change in the presentation of our results, which we have elected to include as separate Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income.
