a. Principles of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its wholly owned subsidiaries. Upon consolidation, all intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated. Amounts pertaining to the non-controlling ownership interest held by third parties in the operating results and financial position of the Companys majority owned subsidiaries are reported as minority interest. The Companys fiscal year is the 52-week or 53-week period ending on the Saturday closest to the last day in October. Fiscal years 2006, 2005 and 2004 were 52-week periods. Fiscal year 2007 is a 53-week period.
Certain amounts reported in previous years have been reclassified to conform to the fiscal 2006 presentation. Such reclassifications were immaterial.
