We have a 52- or 53-week fiscal year that ends on the last Saturday in December. Fiscal years 2015, 2014, and 2013 were 52-week years. Fiscal year 2016 is a 53-week fiscal year, and the first quarter of 2016 will be 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 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. We have reclassified certain prior period amounts to conform to current period presentation.
As a result of our integration of McAfee Inc. (McAfee) in the third quarter of 2015, the functional currency for operations previously acquired from McAfee was changed to the U.S. dollar, making the U.S. dollar the functional currency for Intel and our subsidiaries.
