2  Overview of Proposed Changes  Discussion on Financial Statement Impact  Case Study  Other Matters to Consider OVERVIEW OF PRESENTATION

3 Background Information  During 2014, FASB and IASB continued discussions on the 2013 proposal  Remain committed to putting most leases on balance sheets  Agreed to simplify many aspects of the 2013 proposal  Response to constituents’ concerns about cost and complexity Current Status of Exposed Draft  Plan to complete deliberations in 2015  Expected effective date of 2017  Most likely to include retrospective adoption  Some open issues  Lessee disclosure  Transition  Finalized effective date BACKGROUND & CURRENT STATUS

4  Eliminates off-balance sheet accounting for leases  Right-of-use asset and liability  measured at the PV of future lease payments and presented on the balance sheet  Income statement geography and timing (for some) of recognition will change  Financial performance ratios may no longer be useful – other metrics may evolve  Lease assumptions will need to be continually assessed IMPLICATIONS OF REVISED GUIDANCE

5  Terms of Lease:  5 Years at 5,000 square feet  Rent - $20/psf  Operating Expense - $8.50/psf  Rent escalation – 3% / year  Free Rent – 5 months  Tenant Improvement Cost - $20/psf  Tenant Improvement Allowance - $10/psf Current Guidance  Rent, less amortized TI Allowance, is recognized straight-line over the term of the arrangement  Leasehold improvements are capitalized on the balance sheet and amortized over the lesser of their useful lives or the lease term EXAMPLE IMPACT – FACT PATTERN

6  Two types of leases under new guidance  Type A  Typically for non-property and will look more like financing transactions  Type B  Typically for property and will look more like current operating lease transactions  Our example would classify as a Type B lease  Lease liability established  Calculated as PV of rent payments less lease incentive, and excluding operating expense payments  Interest expense increases the liability, which is offset by actual payments to the landlord – think typical mortgage amortization schedule  Right of use asset of established  Same value as liability  Amortized (for Type B, amortization is back-loaded because it’s the balancing factor between straight-line rent and front-loaded interest expense)  TI Improvements are unchanged  Lease Extensions PROPOSED GUIDANCE IMPACT
