Effective Oct. 1, 2018, the company adopted the new revenue recognition accounting standard. The adoption primarily resulted in a reclassification of certain items within the company’s income statement and for the fourth quarter had no impact on net earnings or on cash flow from operations. Fourth-quarter 2019 results contrast to the prior-year period included increases of about $16M in sales and $17M in cost of sales, as well as decreases of $1M in SG&A expenses.
