Basis of Presentation
The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Natus Medical Incorporated (“we,” “us,” or “our”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Except where noted below within Note 1, the accounting policies followed in the preparation of the interim condensed consolidated financial statements are consistent in all material respects with those presented in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Interim financial reports are prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission; accordingly, the reports do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for annual financial statements. The interim financial information is unaudited, and reflects all normal adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for the fair presentation of our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the interim periods presented. We have made certain reclassifications to the prior period to conform to current period presentation. The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 was derived from audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. The accompanying financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include our accounts and our wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements Recently Adopted Accounting PronouncementsIn July 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-05, Leases (Topic 842): Lessors-Certain Leases with Variable Lease Payments. This update addresses stakeholders' concerns by amending the lease classification requirements for lessors to align them with practice under Topic 840. Lessors should classify and account for a lease with variable lease payments that do not depend on a reference index or a rate as an operating lease if the lease would have been classified as a sales-type lease or a direct financing lease in accordance with 842-10-25-2 through 25-3 and the lessors would have otherwise recognized a day-one loss. ASU 2021-05 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. We have early adopted the ASU on a prospective basis in the third quarter of the current fiscal year. The adoption of ASU 2021-05 did not have an impact on our consolidated financial statements.
