Note A — Basis of Presentation
VF Corporation (and its subsidiaries, collectively known as "VF") uses a 52/53 week fiscal year ending on the Saturday closest to December 31 of each year. For presentation purposes herein, all references to periods ended June 2011, December 2010 and June 2010 relate to the fiscal periods ended on July 2, 2011, January 1, 2011 and July 3, 2010, respectively.
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X and do not include all of the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States of America for complete financial statements. Similarly, the December 2010 consolidated balance sheet was derived from audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to fairly present the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows of VF for the interim periods presented. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 2011 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the year ending December 31, 2011. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes included in VF's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 2010 ("2010 Form 10-K").
Certain prior year amounts, none of which are material, have been reclassified to conform with the 2011 presentation.
