NOTE 2. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
Recently adopted accounting standards
The Company adopted ASU 2016-02, Leases (ASC 842), on January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective approach and did not restate comparative periods as permitted by ASU 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements. We have elected the transition package of practical expedients, which permitted us not to reassess our prior conclusions regarding lease identification, lease classification and initial direct cost. Upon adoption, the Company recognized operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities of $195.7 million and $195.5 million, and a $0.2 million adjustment to beginning retained earnings.
The Company adopted ASU 2018-02, “Income Statement—Reporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income”, which allows a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income to retained earnings for stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (“Tax Reform Act”). The Company adopted ASU 2018-02 effective January 1, 2019 and elected not to recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment.
Recently issued accounting standards to be adopted in 2019 or later
In June of 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments.” The updated accounting guidance requires changes to the recognition of credit losses on financial instruments not accounted for at fair value through net income. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the effect the guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment, which eliminates the requirement to calculate the implied fair value of goodwill (i.e., Step 2 of the current goodwill impairment test) to measure a goodwill impairment charge. Instead, entities will record an impairment charge based on the excess of a reporting unit’s carrying amount over its fair value (i.e., measure the charge based on the current Step 1). The standard in this update is effective for the Company’s financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning in 2020. Early adoption is permitted for annual and interim goodwill impairment testing dates after January 1, 2017. The adoption of this ASU is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
In August 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), which provides new guidance intended to improve the financial reporting of hedging relationships to better portray the economic results of an entity’s risk management activities in its financial statements. This ASU is effective for the Company beginning in fiscal year 2020. The adoption of this ASU is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
