Our accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP") for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to SEC Form 10-Q and Article 10 of SEC Regulation S-X. Therefore, such financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in our 2020 Form 10-K. In our opinion, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021. 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates affecting the financial statements include accruals for contract disallowance reserves, inventory reserves, costs to complete on fixed price contracts, and recoverability of goodwill and intangible assets.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease, known as COVID-19, as a global pandemic. The pandemic and the containment and mitigation efforts by governments to attempt to control its spread created uncertainties and disruptions in the economic and financial markets. The pandemic triggered a decline in demand for our Aviation segment products and services beginning with the second quarter of 2020 and continues to have an impact on the segment. Our results of operations for the first nine months of 2021 continue to reflect the adverse impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. Although demand has improved since the onset of the pandemic, it remains below pre-pandemic levels in certain areas of our business. The extent to which the impact of COVID-19 may continue to have an adverse effect on our future business and results of operations is highly uncertain and unpredictable. However, we believe that the global vaccination effort underway may generate an increase in commercial air travel and result in a gradual recovery in demand for our Aviation segment products and services for the remainder of 2021. We are closely monitoring the effects and risks of COVID-19 to assess its continuing impact on our business, financial condition and results of operations. We maintain a robust continuity plan to adequately respond to situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic, including a framework for remote work arrangements, in order to effectively maintain operations, including financial reporting systems, internal controls over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures.
