Revenue from Contracts with Customers
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard that will supersede nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP. The standard’s core principle is that a company should recognize revenue when it transfers goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods and services, and provides a revenue recognition framework in accordance with this principle. On August 12, 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14, which defers the effective date of ASU 2014-09 by one year to December 15, 2017 for annual reporting periods beginning after that date and interim periods therein. Early adoption of the standard is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that the adoption of this guidance will have on its financial statements and future operating results.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases,” which requires an entity to recognize assets and liabilities arising from leases on the balance sheet and to provide additional disclosures about leasing arrangements. ASU 2016-02 will be effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this guidance will have on its financial statements.
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, “Compensation-Stock Compensation: Improvements to Employee Share Based Payment Accounting,” which includes multiple provisions intended to simplify various aspects of accounting for share-based payments. The guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted this guidance for the three months ended March 31, 2017. This pronouncement did not have a material impact on the financial statements.
