Item 8.01 Other Events.
Adoption of Accounting Guidance for Revised Comprehensive Income Presentation
Advance Auto Parts, Inc. (the “Parent”) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K to reflect the retrospective adoption of a new accounting pronouncement with respect to the financial information contained in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. Effective first quarter ended April 21, 2012, the Parent and its subsidiaries (collectively the "Company") adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2011-05 "Comprehensive Income - Presentation of Comprehensive Income" which changed how comprehensive income is presented in the Company's consolidated financial statements. This guidance was applied retrospectively for the interim periods presented. The adoption of this guidance changed the presentation of the Company's consolidated financial statements but did not affect the calculation of net income, comprehensive income or earnings per share. The following presents the retrospective application of ASU 2011-05 for the three most recently completed fiscal years ended December 31, 2011, January 1, 2011 and January 2, 2010 and should be read in conjunction with the information in the Parent's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011:
ADVANCE AUTO PARTS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF COMPREHENSIVE INCOME
For the Years Ended December 31, 2011, January 1, 2011 and January 2, 2010
Other comprehensive income (loss), net of tax:
Changes in net unrecognized other postretirement benefit costs, net of $98, $205 and $246 tax
Unrealized (loss) gain on hedge arrangements, net of $163, $1,257, and $1,815 tax
Amortization of unrecognized losses on interest rate swaps, net of $3,644, $0 and $0 tax
Other comprehensive income (loss)
Historically, the Company has included the condensed financial statements of the Parent as part of the financial schedules of the Form 10-K filed by the Parent. Comprehensive income reported by the Parent is consistent with the information presented by the Company.
The information included in this Current Report on Form 8-K is presented for information purposes only in connection with the reporting change described above and does not amend or restate the Company's audited consolidated financial statements which were included in the Parent's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. This Current Report on Form 8-K does not reflect events occurring after February 28, 2012, the date the Parent filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, and does not modify or update the disclosures therein in any way, other than to reflect the adoption of the new accounting standard as described above. You should read this Current Report on Form 8-K in conjunction with the Parent's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and with the Parent's reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission after February 28, 2012.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
