Note 1: Basis of Presentation
We prepared our interim consolidated condensed financial statements that accompany these notes in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, consistent in all material respects with those applied in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 26, 2015. We have reclassified certain prior period amounts to conform to current period presentation.
We have a 52- or 53-week fiscal year that ends on the last Saturday in December. Fiscal year 2015 was a 52-week year. Fiscal year 2016 is a 53-week fiscal year, and the first quarter of 2016 was a 14-week quarter.
In the first quarter of 2016, we completed the acquisition of Altera Corporation (Altera). For further information, see "Note 8: Acquisitions."
We have made estimates and judgments affecting the amounts reported in our consolidated condensed financial statements and the accompanying notes. The actual results that we experience may differ materially from our estimates. The interim financial information is unaudited, but reflects all normal adjustments that are, in our opinion, necessary to provide a fair statement of results for the interim periods presented. This interim information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 26, 2015.
