FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION

The accumulated other comprehensive loss account in stockholders’ equity of $319,007 and $340,112 at December 31, 2018 and 2019, respectively, includes the cumulative foreign currency losses of $315,300 and $328,053, respectively, from translating the financial statements of the Company’s international subsidiaries and the change in fair values of the Company’s interest rate swap agreements designated as hedges.

As of December 31, 2019, all foreign countries where the Company has operations, other than Argentina, are non-highly inflationary, and the local currency is the same as the functional currency in all of the locations. Thus, any fluctuation in the currency results in a cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment recorded to accumulated other comprehensive loss.  The Company deemed Argentina to be highly inflationary beginning July 1, 2018.  A highly inflationary economy is defined as an economy with a cumulative inflation rate of approximately 100 percent or more over a three-year period. If a country’s economy is classified as highly inflationary, the financial statements of the foreign entity operating in that country must be remeasured to the functional currency of

the reporting entity.  The financial statements of the Company’s Argentina subsidiaries has been remeasured in U.S. dollars in accordance with ASC Topic 830, Foreign Currency Matters, effective beginning July 1, 2018.

Below is a summary of the impact of translating the financial statements of all of the Company’s international subsidiaries as of and for the years ended December 31, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
