ACETO CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
YEARS ENDED JUNE 30, 2017, 2016 AND 2015
(in thousands, except per-share amounts)
Inventory, which consists principally of finished goods, are stated at the lower of cost (first-in first-out method) and net realizable value. The Company writes down its inventory for estimated excess and obsolete goods by an amount equal to the difference between the carrying cost of the inventory and net realizable value based upon assumptions about future demand and market conditions.
Environmental and Other Contingencies
The Company establishes accrued liabilities for environmental matters and other contingencies when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the liability is reasonably estimable. If the contingency is resolved for an amount greater or less than the accrual, or the Company’s share of the contingency increases or decreases, or other assumptions relevant to the development of the estimate were to change, the Company would recognize an additional expense or benefit in the consolidated statements of income in the period such determination was made.
In connection with certain historical acquisitions in Germany, the Company assumed defined benefit pension plans covering certain employees who meet certain eligibility requirements. The net pension benefit obligations recorded and the related periodic costs are based on, among other things, assumptions of the discount rate, estimated return on plan assets, salary increases and the mortality of participants. The obligation for these claims and the related periodic costs are measured using actuarial techniques and assumptions. Actuarial gains and losses are deferred and amortized over future periods. The Company’s plans are funded in conformity with the funding requirements of applicable government regulations.
Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss
The components of accumulated other comprehensive loss as of June 30, 2017 and 2016 are as follows:
The foreign currency translation adjustments for the years ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 primarily relate to the fluctuation of the conversion rate of the Euro. The currency translation adjustments are not adjusted for income taxes as they relate to indefinite investments in non-US subsidiaries.

Under the stock repurchase program, the Company is authorized to purchase up to 5,000 shares of common stock in open market or private transactions, at prices not to exceed the market value of the common stock at the time of such purchase.
