The accompanying unaudited financial statements fairly present the consolidated statements of comprehensive income, consolidated balance sheets, consolidated statements of stockholders’ equity and consolidated statements of cash flows, and reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments which are necessary for the fair statement of the results of the interim periods. Preparing financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses.
The interim results of operations are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for a full year. The balance sheet data as of June 30, 2022 was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Accordingly, these unaudited financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our 2022 Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2022.
