|Basis of Presentation||BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements of Ameresco, Inc. (including its subsidiaries, the “Company,” “Ameresco,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) are unaudited, according to certain rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and include, in our opinion, normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) of the results for the periods indicated.
The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of results which may be expected for the full year. The December 31, 2020 consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The interim condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes for the year ended December 31, 2020, included in our annual report on Form 10-K (“2020 Annual Report” or “2020 Form 10-K”) for the year ended December 31, 2020 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 2, 2021.
Certain prior period amounts were reclassified to conform to the presentation in the current period.
Significant Risks and Uncertainties
We considered the impact of COVID-19 on the assumptions and estimates used and determined that there was no material adverse impact on our results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 or 2020. Our results of future operations and liquidity could be adversely impacted by a number of factors associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, including payments of outstanding receivable amounts beyond normal payment terms, delays in obtaining signed customer contracts for awarded projects, supply chain disruptions and uncertain demand. As of the date of issuance of these condensed consolidated financial statements, the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic may impact our financial condition, liquidity, or results of operations in the future is uncertain.
The entire disclosure for the nature of an entity's business, major products or services, principal markets including location, and the relative importance of its operations in each business and the basis for the determination, including but not limited to, assets, revenues, or earnings. For an entity that has not commenced principal operations, disclosures about the risks and uncertainties related to the activities in which the entity is currently engaged and an understanding of what those activities are being directed toward.
