NOTE 3—RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In the first quarter of 2018, the Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-18, “Restricted Cash (a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force).” ASU 2016-18 requires an entity to include in its cash and cash-equivalent balances in the statement of cash flows those amounts that are deemed to be restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents. The Company adopted ASU 2016-18 on a retrospective basis, and net transfers of restricted cash of $5.0 million and $2.6 million have been presented in net change in cash and cash equivalents in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

In the first quarter of 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2016-15, “Statement of Cash Flows: Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments.” ASU 2016-15 requires an entity to classify distributions received from equity method investees in the statement of cash flows using either the cumulative earnings approach or the nature of distribution approach. The Company adopted ASU 2016-15 on a retrospective basis and elected to classify distributions received from its equity method investees using the cumulative earnings approach. The adoption of ASC 2016-15 did not have an impact on the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

In the first quarter of 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09 (ASC Topic 606), “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” and the related ASUs, which provided new guidance for revenue recognized from contracts with customers and replaced the previously existing revenue recognition guidance. ASU 2014-09 requires that revenue be recognized at an amount the Company is entitled to upon transferring control of goods or services to customers, as opposed to when risks and rewards transfer to a customer. The Company adopted ASC Topic 606 using the modified retrospective method, and accordingly, the new guidance was applied retrospectively to contracts that were not completed as of December 31, 2017. Results for operating periods beginning after January 1, 2018 are presented under ASC Topic 606, while comparative information for prior periods has not been restated and continues to be reported in accordance with the accounting standards in effect for those periods. The adoption of ASC Topic 606 did not result in changes to the method or timing of revenue recognized and did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.

There was no material difference in the Company’s results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 with application of ASC Topic 606 on its contracts and what results would have been if such contracts had been reported using accounting standards previously in effect for such contracts. The Company elected to utilize the modified retrospective transition practical expedient that allows the Company to evaluate the impact of contract modifications as of January 1, 2018 rather than evaluating the impact of the modifications at the time they occurred. There was no material impact associated with the election of this practical expedient.

The Company also elected to utilize the practical expedient to recognize revenue in the amount to which it has a right to invoice for services performed when it has a right to consideration from a customer in an amount that corresponds directly with the value of its performance completed to date.

Please refer to “Note 5–Revenue” for additional discussion of the Company’s revenue recognition accounting policies and expanded disclosures required by ASC Topic 606.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, “Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting,” which expands the scope of ASC Topic 718, “Compensation–Stock Compensation” and applies to all share-based payment transactions to nonemployees in which a grantor acquires goods and services to be used or consumed in a grantor’s own operations by issuing share-based awards. Upon adoption of ASU 2018-07, an entity should only remeasure liability-classified awards that have not been settled by the date of adoption and equity-classified awards for which a measurement date has not been established through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. ASU 2018-07 is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2018-07 to have a material impact on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-02, “Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income,” which gives entities the option to reclassify the tax effects stranded in accumulated other comprehensive income as a result of the enactment of comprehensive tax legislation in December 2017, commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the “Tax Act”), to retained earnings. ASU 2018-02 is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2018-02 to have a material impact on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases.” The primary difference between the current requirement under GAAP and ASU 2016-02 is the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases. ASU 2016-02 requires that a lessee recognize in the statement of financial position a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term (other than leases that meet the definition of a short-term lease). The liability will be equal to the present value of lease payments. The asset will be based on the liability, subject to adjustment, such as for initial direct costs. For income statement purposes, the FASB retained a dual model, requiring leases to be classified as either operating or finance. Operating leases will result in straight-line expense (similar to current operating leases), while finance leases will result in a front-loaded expense pattern (similar to current capital leases). Classification will be based on criteria that are largely similar to those applied in current lease accounting. ASU 2016-02 is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. ASU 2016-02 must be adopted using a modified retrospective transition, and provides for certain practical expedients. The Company has not determined the potential impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-02 on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
