This excerpt taken from the FUN 10-Q filed May 8, 2009.
FOR THE PERIODS ENDED MARCH 29, 2009 AND MARCH 30, 2008
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared from the financial records of Cedar Fair, L.P. (the Partnership) without audit and reflect all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to fairly present the results of the interim periods covered in this report.
Due to the highly seasonal nature of the Partnerships amusement and water park operations, the results for any interim period are not indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year. Accordingly, the Partnership has elected to present financial information regarding operations and cash flows for the preceding fiscal twelve-month periods ended March 29, 2009 and March 30, 2008 to accompany the quarterly results. Because amounts for the fiscal twelve months ended March 29, 2009 include actual 2008 peak season operating results, they may not be indicative of 2009 full calendar year operations. Additionally, the fiscal twelve-month period ended March 29, 2009 includes one less week compared to the fiscal twelve-month period ended March 30, 2008.
