Interim Financial Statements. Brunswick's unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") rules and regulations. Therefore, certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements and related notes prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") have been condensed or omitted.
These financial statements should be read in conjunction with, and have been prepared in conformity with, the accounting principles reflected in the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in Brunswick's 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the 2021 Form 10-K). These results include, in management's opinion, all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly Brunswick's financial position, results of operations and cash flows. Due to the seasonality of Brunswick's businesses, the interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the remainder of the year.
The Company maintains its financial records on the basis of a fiscal year ending on December 31, with the fiscal quarters spanning approximately thirteen weeks. The first quarter ends on the Saturday closest to the end of the first thirteen-week period. The second and third quarters are thirteen weeks in duration and the fourth quarter is the remainder of the year. The first quarter of fiscal year 2022 ended on April 2, 2022 and the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 ended on April 3, 2021.
The entire disclosure for all significant accounting policies of the reporting entity.
