NOTE 2 – NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARD IMPLEMENTED
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2016‑02, Leases, as amended (“ASC 842”), which requires the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases under previous guidance. We adopted the provisions of ASC 842 effective January 1, 2019 using the cumulative-effect adjustment transition method, which applies the provisions of the standard as of the effective date without adjusting the comparative periods presented. As a result of the adoption, we recorded operating lease right-of-use assets of $8.9 million and operating lease liabilities of $8.9 million. The adoption had an immaterial impact on our net assets as of January 1, 2019. In addition, we elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which allowed us to carry forward the historical lease classification.
Additional information and disclosures required by this new standard are contained in Note 8.
The entire disclosure of changes in accounting principles, including adoption of new accounting pronouncements, that describes the new methods, amount and effects on financial statement line items.
