NOTE 1—BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Williams Industrial Services Group Inc. was incorporated in 2001 under the name “Global Power Equipment Group Inc.” under the laws of the State of Delaware and became the successor to GEEG Holdings, LLC, which was formed as a Delaware limited liability company in 1998. Effective June 29, 2018, Global Power Equipment Group Inc. changed its name to Williams Industrial Services Group Inc. (together with its wholly owned subsidiaries, “Williams,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our,” unless the context indicates otherwise) to better align its name with the Williams business, and our stock now trades on the OTCQX® Best Market under the ticker symbol “WLMS.” Williams has been safely helping plant owners and operators enhance asset value for more than 50 years. We provide a broad range of construction, maintenance and support services to customers in energy, power and industrial end markets. Our mission is to be the preferred provider of construction, maintenance, and specialty services through commitment to superior safety performance, focus on innovation, and dedication to delivering unsurpassed value to our customers.
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) on a basis consistent with that used in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 27, 2020 (the “2019 Report”). In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, including all normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations, comprehensive income (loss), stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the periods indicated. All significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated. The December 31, 2019 unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. These unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements and accompanying notes should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in the 2019 Report. Accounting measurements at interim dates inherently involve greater reliance on estimates than at year-end. The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of operations to be expected for the full year.
The Company reports on a fiscal quarter basis utilizing a “modified” 4-4-5 calendar (modified in that the fiscal year always begins on January 1 and ends on December 31). However, the Company has continued to label its quarterly information using a calendar convention. The effects of this practice are modest and only exist when comparing interim period results. The reporting periods and corresponding fiscal interim periods are as follows:
The entire disclosure for the organization, consolidation and basis of presentation of financial statements disclosure, and significant accounting policies of the reporting entity. May be provided in more than one note to the financial statements, as long as users are provided with an understanding of (1) the significant judgments and assumptions made by an enterprise in determining whether it must consolidate a VIE and/or disclose information about its involvement with a VIE, (2) the nature of restrictions on a consolidated VIE's assets reported by an enterprise in its statement of financial position, including the carrying amounts of such assets, (3) the nature of, and changes in, the risks associated with an enterprise's involvement with the VIE, and (4) how an enterprise's involvement with the VIE affects the enterprise's financial position, financial performance, and cash flows. Describes procedure if disclosures are provided in more than one note to the financial statements.
