Management Discussion
  • Management believes the comparison of the most recently completed quarter to the immediately preceding quarter provides more relevant information needed to understand and analyze the business. As such, as permitted under applicable SEC rules, we have elected to discuss any material changes in our results of operations by including a comparison of our most recently completed fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022 (the "current quarter") (Successor) to the immediate preceding fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2021 (Successor) (the "preceding quarter"). We also continue to discuss any material changes in our results of operations for the current quarter compared to the corresponding period of the preceding fiscal year (Predecessor) (the "prior year quarter"), as required under the applicable SEC rules.
