NOTE 3—RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In August 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2018-15, “Intangibles—Goodwill and Other Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40).” This update aligns the requirements for capitalizing costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal use software, including hosting arrangements that are service contracts, over the term of the hosting arrangement. Further, this update requires the presentation of the expense in the statement of income, the presentation of the costs on the statement of financial position and the classification of payments in the statement of cash flows related to capitalized implementation costs to be treated the same as the fees of the associated hosting arrangement. In the first quarter of 2020, the Company adopted ASU 2018-15, which did not have a material impact on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820).” This amendment update modifies disclosure requirements related to fair value measurement. In the first quarter of 2020, the Company adopted ASU 2018-13, which did not have a material impact on its financial statement disclosures.

In November 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-18, “Collaborative Arrangements (Topic 808).” This amendment update clarifies the interaction between Topic 808, Collaborative Arrangements, and Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. In the first quarter of 2020, the Company adopted ASU 2018-18, which did not have a material impact on its financial statement disclosures.

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-03, “Codification Improvements to Financial Instruments.” This amendment update amends various topics in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) to make technical corrections and minor improvements to the guidance on financial instruments as part of the FASB’s ongoing project to clarify guidance and correct unintended application of the guidance. The FASB expects that the amendments will not have significant effect on current accounting practice nor create a significant administrative cost to most entities. In the second quarter of 2020, the Company adopted ASU 2020-03, which did not have a material impact on its financial statement disclosures.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, “Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting (Topic 848).” This guidance is to provide temporary optional expedients and exceptions to the GAAP guidance on contract modifications and hedge accounting to ease the financial reporting burdens of the expected market transition from the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates, such as the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR). The guidance is effective upon issuance and may be adopted on any date on or after March 12, 2020. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this ASU will have on its results of operations, financial position and cash flows.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, “Income Taxes”, which simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions for investments, intraperiod allocations and interim calculations, and adding guidance to reduce complexity in accounting for income taxes. The update is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this ASU will have on its results of operations, financial position and cash flows.
