Impact of New Revenue Recognition Standard
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), (“ASC 606”), which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. ASC 606 will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. generally accepted accounting principles when it becomes effective. In addition, the standard requires disclosure of the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from the contracts with customers.
ASC 606 permits two methods of adoption: retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented (full retrospective method), or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the guidance recognized at the date of initial application (modified retrospective method).
The Company adopted ASC 606 as of January 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective method. The new standard will therefore be applied to all contracts not completed as of January 1, 2018. While the Company does not believe the adoption of ASC 606 will have a material impact to its results of operations or cash flows, it does expect ASC 606 to have an impact on the classification of certain revenues and related expenses, as summarized below. Quantitative amounts included below are estimates of the expected effects of the Company’s adoption of ASC 606 and represent management’s best estimates of the impact of adopting ASC 606 at the time of the preparation of this Annual Report on Form 10-K. The actual impact of ASC 606 is subject to change from these estimates, pending the completion of the Company’s assessment during the first quarter of 2018.
The timing of revenue recognition for other revenue streams, including revenues for unredeemed gift cards and other advanced sales-type certificates, will also be impacted by the adoption of ASC 606, but we do not expect such changes to be material.
Other New Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), (“ASU 2016-02”). The purpose of ASU 2016-02 is to provide financial statement users a better understanding of the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. The adoption of ASU 2016-02 will result in the recognition of a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for most operating leases. New disclosure requirements include qualitative and quantitative information about the amounts recorded in the financial statements. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. ASU 2016-02 requires a modified retrospective transition by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the fiscal year in which the guidance is effective with the option to elect certain practical expedients. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2016-02 on its consolidated financial statements. The most significant impact of the amendments in ASU 2016-02 will be the recognition of new right-of-use assets and lease liabilities for assets currently subject to operating leases. The Company will adopt the amendments in ASU 2016-02 in the first quarter of 2019.
In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, (“ASU 2016-09”). The purpose of ASU 2016-09 is to simplify the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification of such activity on the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-09 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that year. Prospective, retrospective, or modified retrospective application may be used dependent on the specific requirements of the amendments within ASU 2016-09. Effective January 1, 2017, the Company adopted ASU 2016-09 on a prospective basis (see Note 3). As such, prior periods have not been adjusted.
In August 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments – a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force, (“ASU 2016-15”). The purpose of ASU 2016-15 is to reduce the diversity in practice regarding how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that year. A retrospective transition method should be used in the application of the amendments within ASU 2016-15. Early adoption is permitted. Upon adoption, the Company will reclassify $9,519 of cash payments recorded in loss on debt amendments and refinancing from operating activities to financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2016. The Company does not expect ASU 2016-15 to have any other material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
In January 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2017-04, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment, (“ASU 2017-04”). The purpose of ASU 2017-04 is to simplify the subsequent measurement of goodwill by removing the second step of the two-step impairment test. The amendments should be applied on a prospective basis. ASU 2017-04 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within that year. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. The Company adopted the amendments in ASU 2017-04 during the second quarter of 2017 in order to reduce the complexity of performing its goodwill impairment tests. As discussed in Note 1, these tests are generally performed in the fourth quarter of each year. ASU 2017-04 did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
In May 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2017-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope Modification Accounting, (“ASU 2017-09”). The amendments in ASU 2017-09 provide guidance on which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting as described in ASC Topic 718. The amendments should be applied on a prospective basis. ASU 2017-09 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that year. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect ASU 2017-09 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
In August 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities, (“ASU 2017-12”). The amendments in ASU 2017-12 improve the financial reporting of hedging relationships to better reflect the economic results of an entity’s risk management activities in its financial statements. Additionally, the amendments in ASU 2017-12 simplify certain steps of applying hedge accounting guidance. ASU 2017-12 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that year. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect ASU 2017-12 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
