In the opinion of management, these condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of only normal and recurring adjustments, necessary and in all material aspects, for a fair statement of the results of operations, comprehensive income, financial position, cash flows and changes in shareholders' equity for the periods presented. Operating results for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021, or any future periods.

Changes in Significant Accounting Policies

Other than the recent accounting pronouncements adopted and discussed below under Recent Accounting Pronouncements Adopted, there have been no material changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies during the nine months ended December 31, 2020 compared with the significant accounting policies described in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and various other assumptions believed to be reasonable. Significant estimates and assumptions made by management involve fair value of goodwill and intangible assets acquired from business acquisitions, valuation of right-of-use assets, valuation of investment in privately held companies classified under Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy, pensions obligations, warranty liabilities, accruals for customer incentives, cooperative marketing, and pricing programs (Customer Programs) and related breakage when appropriate, accrued sales return liability, inventory valuation, share-based compensation expense, uncertain tax positions, and valuation allowances for deferred tax assets. Although these estimates are based on management’s best knowledge of current events and actions that may impact the Company in the future, actual results could differ materially from these estimates.
Risks and Uncertainties
We are subject to risks and uncertainties as a result of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Capital markets and economies worldwide have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 and it is still unclear how lasting and deep the economic impacts will be. During the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had mixed effects on the Company’s results of operations, and it may continue to have mixed or adverse effects. While there was high demand for and consumption of certain of our products that led to increased sales and operating income during the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020, at the same time the Company experienced disruptions and higher costs in our manufacturing, supply chain and logistics operations and outsourced services. The ongoing and full extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company's business and operational and financial performance and condition, including the sustainability of its effect on trends positive to the Company, is uncertain and will depend on many factors outside the Company's control, including but not limited to the timing, extent, duration and effects of the virus and any of its mutations, the availability of vaccines and their global deployment, the development of effective treatments, the imposition of effective public safety and other protective measures and the public's response to such measures, the impact of COVID-19 on the global economy and demand for the Company's products and services. Should the COVID-19 pandemic or global economic slowdown not improve or worsen, or if the Company's attempt to mitigate its impact on its operations and costs is not successful, the Company's business, results of operations, financial condition and prospects may be adversely affected.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements Adopted

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, "Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments" (ASU 2016-13), which was further updated and clarified by the FASB through issuance of additional related ASUs, replaces the incurred-loss impairment methodology and requires immediate recognition of estimated credit losses expected to occur for most financial assets, including trade receivables. The new standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company adopted this standard effective April 1, 2020, using a modified retrospective approach. Upon adoption, the Company updated its credit loss models to utilize a forward-looking current expected credit losses (CECL) model in place of the incurred loss methodology for financial instruments measured at amortized cost, including accounts receivable. The cumulative effect adjustment from adoption was not material to the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.  

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, "Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurements" (ASU 2018-13), which eliminates, adds and modifies certain disclosure requirements for fair value measurements, including eliminating the requirement to disclose the amount of and reasons for transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, and requiring the range and weighted average used to develop significant unobservable inputs for Level 3 fair value measurements. Some of these disclosure changes must be applied prospectively while others retrospectively depending on requirement. The Company adopted this standard effective April 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2018-13 did not have a material impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-14, "Compensation - Retirement Benefits - Defined Benefits Plans - General (Subtopic 715-20): Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans" (ASU 2018-14), which requires that the Company remove various disclosures that no longer are considered cost-beneficial, namely amounts in accumulated other comprehensive income expected to be recognized as components of net periodic benefit cost over the next fiscal year. Further, ASU 2018-14 requires disclosure or clarification of the reasons for significant gains or losses related to changes in the benefit obligation for the period. The Company adopted this standard effective April 1, 2020 using a retrospective approach and the updated disclosures will be included in the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021. The adoption of ASU 2018-14 did not have an impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements To Be Adopted

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, "Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes" (ASU 2019-12), which eliminates certain exceptions for recognizing deferred taxes for investments, performing intraperiod allocation and calculating income taxes in interim periods. This ASU also includes guidance to reduce complexity in certain areas, including recognizing deferred taxes for tax goodwill and allocating taxes to members of a consolidated group. ASU 2019-12 is effective for annual and interim periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of ASU 2019-12 on its consolidated financial statements and plans to adopt the standard effective April 1, 2021.

Note 2 — Net Income Per Share

Share equivalents attributable to outstanding stock options, restricted stock units ("RSUs") and employee share purchase plan ("ESPP") rights totaling 0.3 million and 1.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and 0.4 million and 1.8 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, were excluded from the calculation of diluted net income per share because the combined exercise price and average unamortized grant date fair value upon exercise of these options and ESPP rights or vesting of RSUs were greater than the average market price of the Company's shares during the periods presented herein, and therefore their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive. A small number of performance-based awards were not included in the calculation because all necessary conditions had not been satisfied by the end of the respective period, and those shares were not issuable if the end of the reporting period were the end of the performance contingency period.

As of December 31, 2020 and 2019, the balance of capitalized share-based compensation included in inventory was $1.0 million and $0.9 million, respectively.
Defined Benefit Plans
Certain of the Company’s subsidiaries sponsor defined benefit pension plans or non-retirement post-employment benefits covering substantially all of their employees. Benefits are provided based on employees’ years of service and earnings, or in accordance with applicable employee benefit regulations. The Company’s practice is to fund amounts sufficient to meet the requirements set forth in the applicable employee benefit and tax regulations. The costs recorded of $2.9 million and $2.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $8.3 million and $7.1 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, were primarily related to service costs.
Note 4 — Income Taxes
The Company is incorporated in Switzerland but operates in various countries with differing tax laws and rates. Further, a portion of the Company’s income before taxes and the provision for (benefit from) income taxes are generated outside of Switzerland.

The canton of Vaud enacted the Federal Act on Tax Reform and AHV Financing ("TRAF"), a major reform to better align the Swiss tax system with international tax standards, on March 10, 2020 that took effect as of January 1, 2020. The longstanding tax ruling from the canton of Vaud was applicable through December 31, 2019.

The income tax provision for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was $72.3 million based on an effective income tax rate of 15.9% of pre-tax income, compared to an income tax provision of $14.5 million based on an effective income tax rate of 11.0% of pre-tax income for the three months ended December 31, 2019. The income tax provision for the nine months ended December 31, 2020 was $142.6 million based on an effective income tax rate of 16.5% of pre-tax income, compared to an income tax provision of $18.4 million based on an effective income tax rate of 7.2% of pre-tax income for the nine months ended December 31, 2019.

The change in the effective income tax rate for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same periods ended December 31, 2019 was primarily due to the mix of income and losses in the various tax jurisdictions in which the Company operates. The Swiss income tax provision in the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020 represents the income tax provision at the full statutory income tax rate of 13.63%. In the same periods ended December 31, 2019 when TRAF was yet to be enacted at the federal and cantonal levels, the transition income tax provision reflects the application of the longstanding tax ruling through December 31, 2019. Furthermore, there was a discrete tax benefit of $1.7 million from adjusting deferred tax assets and liabilities in Switzerland in the nine months ended December 31, 2019. There were discrete tax benefits of $7.2 million and $2.9 million from the recognition of excess tax benefits in the United States and reversal of uncertain tax positions from the expiration of statutes of limitations, respectively, in the nine-month period ended December 31, 2020, compared with $6.0 million and $2.7 million, respectively, in the nine-month period ended December 31, 2019.

As of December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020, the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits due to uncertain tax positions was $158.8 million and $140.8 million, respectively, all of which would affect the effective income tax rate if recognized.

As of December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020, the Company had $60.8 million and $40.8 million, respectively, in non-current income taxes payable including interest and penalties, related to the Company's income tax liability for uncertain tax positions.
The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax positions in the income tax provision. As of December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020, the Company had $4.7 million and $4.5 million, respectively, of accrued interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions in non-current income taxes payable.
Although the Company has adequately provided for uncertain tax positions, the provisions related to these positions may change as revised estimates are made or the underlying matters are settled or otherwise resolved. During fiscal year 2021, the Company continues to review its tax positions and provide for or reverse unrecognized tax benefits as they arise. During the next twelve months, it is reasonably possible that the amount of unrecognized tax benefits could increase or decrease significantly due to changes in tax law in various jurisdictions, new tax audits and changes in the U.S. dollar as compared to other currencies. Excluding these factors, uncertain tax positions may decrease by as much as $4.4 million from the lapse of the statutes of limitations in various jurisdictions during the next twelve months.
