NOTE 1 :
We have a 52- or 53-week fiscal year that ends on the last Saturday in December. Fiscal years 2018 and 2017 were 52-week fiscal years. Fiscal year 2016 was a 53-week year with the first quarter of 2016 being a 14-week quarter. Our consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Intel Corporation (Intel) and our subsidiaries. We have eliminated intercompany accounts and transactions. We have reclassified certain prior period amounts to conform to current period presentation.
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the amounts reported in our consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes. The actual results that we experience may differ materially from our estimates.
