Basis of Presentation
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Bristow Group Inc. and its consolidated entities. Unless the context otherwise indicates, any references to the “Company”, “Bristow”, “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Bristow Group Inc. and its consolidated entities.
The condensed consolidated financial information for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, has been prepared by the Company in accordance with United States (“U.S.”) generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for interim financial information reporting on Quarterly Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted from that which would appear in the annual consolidated financial statements.
In connection with its fiscal year-end change from March 31st to December 31st, the Company filed audited financial statements for the transition period from April 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022, on a Transition Report on Form 10-KT. As such, certain comparative period information has been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. The condensed consolidated financial statements on this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes thereto included in the Company’s Transition Report on Form 10-KT for the transition year ended December 31, 2022, filed with the SEC on March 9, 2023.
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Other Accounting Considerations
Basis of Consolidation — The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Bristow Group Inc., its wholly and majority-owned subsidiaries and entities that meet the criteria of variable interest entities of which the Company is the primary beneficiary. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.
Accounting Estimates — The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying footnotes requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions; however, they include all adjustments of a normal recurring nature which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income, the condensed consolidated balance sheet, the condensed consolidated statements of changes in stockholders equity and the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. Operating results for the interim period presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire year.
Recent Accounting Standards — The Company considers the applicability and impact of all Accounting Standard Updates (“ASUs”) issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”). ASUs not listed within this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q were assessed and determined as either not applicable or not material to the Company’s consolidated financial position or result of operations.
The entire disclosure for the basis of presentation and significant accounting policies concepts. Basis of presentation describes the underlying basis used to prepare the financial statements (for example, US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, Other Comprehensive Basis of Accounting, IFRS).
