Note 1: Basis of Presentation


We have a 52- or 53-week fiscal year that ends on the last Saturday in December. Fiscal years 2012 and 2010 were 52-week years. Fiscal year 2011 was a 53-week year. The next 53-week year will end on December 31, 2016. Our consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Intel Corporation and our subsidiaries. We have eliminated intercompany accounts and transactions. We use the equity method to account for equity investments in instances in which we own common stock or similar interests and have the ability to exercise significant influence, but not control, over the investee. 

In the first quarter of 2011, we completed the acquisition of McAfee, Inc. For further information, see “Note 13: Acquisitions.” Certain of the operations acquired from McAfee have a functional currency other than the U.S. dollar. As a result, we have recorded translation adjustments through accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) beginning in 2011. Prior to the acquisition of McAfee, the U.S. dollar was the functional currency for our company and all of our subsidiaries; therefore, we did not record a translation adjustment through accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) for fiscal year 2010.
