10 ASU 2014-03: Interest Rate Swaps
Impact of interest rate swap Current GAAP PCC Alternative No hedge accounting Hedge accounting Combined instruments (Not pursued) Simplified hedge accounting (Final) Income statement Volatility in interest expense as result of changes in FV Interest expense approximates fixed rate debt Balance sheet Asset or liability at fair value Only disclosure of settlement value Asset or liability at settlement value (or FV) Other comprehensive income No impact Includes changes in fair value of effective portion of hedge Includes changes in settlement value (or FV) of the swap

16 ASU 2014-09, Revenue from contracts with customers (Topic 606)

17 Revenue Recognition Objective: single, principle-based revenue standard Improve accounting for contracts with customers More robust framework for recognizing revenue Increased comparability across industries & capital markets Better disclosures Excludes contributions and collaborative arrangements Substantially converged on major decisions Final standard issued on May 28, 2014

18 Core Principle and Application
Core principle: Recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services 1 Identify contract(s) with the customer 2 Identify performance obligations 3 Determine the transaction price 4 Allocate the transaction price to the identified performance obligations 5 Recognize revenue when performance obligation is satisfied

19 Disclosure requirements*
19 Disaggregate revenue into categories that depict how revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors Explain the relationship with segment disclosures Disaggregation of revenue Opening & closing balances Amount of revenue recognized from contract liabilities Explanation of significant changes in contract balances Information about contract balances Transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations Quantitative or qualitative explanation of when amounts will be recognized as revenue Remaining performance obligations Interim requirements All quantitative disclosures in annual and interim (Public companies only) * Most quantitative disclosures are optional for nonpublic entities

20 Rev Rec—Issuance & Effective Dates: Timeline
Issue final standard May 2014 Establish Transition Resource Group June 2014 Effective Date – Public Entity Jan. 2017 Effective Date – Nonpublic Entity Jan. 2018 A nonpublic company/not-for-profit has the option to early adopt (no earlier than a public company) Transition alternatives: Retrospective for all periods presented Apply when effective For year of adoption, disclose amounts of financial statement line items under old method accounting (to allow trend analysis)

21 Transition Resource Group (TRG) – Overview
To solicit, analyze, and discuss stakeholder issues arising from implementation of the new guidance To inform the FASB and the IASB about those implementation issues, which will help the Boards determine what, if any, action will be needed to address those issues To provide a forum for stakeholders to learn about the new guidance from others involved with implementation TRG will not issue guidance

22 How to Submit an Issue Any stakeholder can submit a potential implementation issue We encourage submissions as soon as possible Issue submitted about new revenue guidance should Involve guidance that can be applied in different ways resulting in diversity in practice Be pervasive (relevant to wide group of stakeholders) Submission forms will not be public Issues may be discussed in public FASB and IASB staff will read all submissions and decide priority of discussing issues

32 Reducing Complexity - Two Issues
Complicated, unclear standard obscures its meaning Accounting treatment is clear, but applying it is lengthy, difficult & expensive

33 How FASB is Addressing the Problem
Progress made and in process Developing internal Board policy on complexity Broaden thinking on complexity through outreach Research project on Simplification Initiative

34 Simplification Initiative Objective
Objective is to reduce cost and complexity while maintaining or improving the usefulness of the information Projects would include narrow- scope items that the Board can complete in the short term Welcome input on ideas

35 Simplification Initiative: Tentative Decisions
Measurement of inventory Inventory would be measured at the lower of cost and net realizable value. A reporting entity would no longer consider replacement cost or net realizable value less an approximately normal profit margin when measuring inventory. Prospective application Eliminating extraordinary items Removed the concept of extraordinary items from U.S. GAAP Unusual or infrequent items would be retained

36 FI: Classification & Measurement—Model
Topic Redeliberated Model (decisions since ED) Cash flow Test Current GAAP - No cash flow test. Revert to the current embedded derivative guidance in Topic 815. Keep existing bifurcation requirements that apply to hybrid financial assets and liabilities Business model Current GAAP - Retain existing separate accounting models to determine the classification and measurement of loans and securities (based on management’s intent) Equity Securities From ED - All equity securities measured at fair value through net income (except equity method and nonmarketable securities) FVO Current GAAP - Unrestricted for financial assets and liabilities subject to Topic 825 Practicability Exception Equity securities with no readily determinable fair value are measured at cost, adjusted for impairment and any observable price changes.

37 FI: Classification & Measurement
“FAS 107” Disclosures: FV information for assets & liabilities carried at amortized cost Public Business Entities – required, either parenthetically on face of statements or in notes Excluded: receivables and payables due in less than one year, demand deposit liabilities Other Entities – no presentation or disclosure requirement Regardless of asset size or presence of derivatives

38 FI: Impairment (Credit Losses)
Expected credit loss model reflecting more forward-looking information Immediate recognition of lifetime expected credit losses on income statement Measurement of expected credit losses (ECL) Reflects management’s expectation based on past events, current conditions, & reasonable and supportable forecasts Reflect the risk of loss (i.e., the possibility that a loss will occur) as opposed to reflecting the most likely outcome (statistical mode) Provide enhanced disclosures compared to current GAAP (still to be redeliberated)

39 FI: Impairment (Credit Losses)
The proposal applies to the following: Debt instruments (e.g., loans and securities) measured at: Loan commitments Lease receivables Trade receivables Pledge receivables (to be redeliberated) Amortized cost FV - OCI

40 EITF projects

41 EITF―Open Issues Issue Status Issue 12-F: Pushdown Accounting
Exposure Draft Redeliberations Issue 12-G: Measuring the Financial Liabilities of a Consolidated Collateralized Financing Entity Final Standard Drafting Issue 13-F: Accounting for the Effect of Federal Housing Administration Guarantee Issue 13-G: Determining Whether the Host Contract in a Hybrid Financial Instrument Issued in the Form of a Share Is More Akin to Debt or to Equity

42 Pushdown Accounting (EITF Issue 12-F) Exposure Draft Issued – Comment period ended July 31, 2014
Background Current U.S. GAAP offers limited guidance about when and how pushdown accounting should be applied. Pushdown accounting governed by SEC staff guidance (for SEC registrants) Pushdown accounting required when 95% (or more) of reporting entity (SEC registrant) is acquired; optional between 80% to 95%; and prohibited below 80% ownership. Perceived as complex because of different thresholds, exceptions and other related rules. Pushdown accounting optional for entities other than SEC registrants. Exposure Draft Issued on April 28, 2014 Provides option to apply pushdown accounting when acquirer (as defined in Topic 805) obtains control of reporting entity. Utilizes existing US GAAP concepts of “control” from Consolidations (Topic 810), and “acquisition method” from Business Combinations (Topic 805) Scope and Transition An acquired entity, both public and nonpublic, that is a business or nonprofit activity. Effective only for future acquisitions after effective date (yet TBD).

43 Pushdown Accounting (EITF Issue 12-F) Exposure Draft Main Provisions – Comments period ended July 31, 2014 Reflect new basis of accounting established by acquirer for individual assets and liabilities of acquired entity by applying Topic 805 on business combinations (mostly fair value) Recognize goodwill that arises due to application of Topic 805 Do not recognize bargain purchase gains Disclose information that enables users to evaluate effect of pushdown accounting Elects pushdown accounting Do not elect pushdown accounting Disclose that entity has: undergone a change-in-control event, and elected to continue to prepare its financial statements using its historical basis Entities will evaluate at each period whether they’ve gone through a change-in-control event

44 PCC projects

45 Private Company Council: Open Projects
Issue Status 13-01A: Accounting for Identifiable Intangible Assets in a Business Combination Exposure Draft Redeliberations 14-01: Definition of a Public Business Entity (phase 2) Initial Deliberations

46 Identifiable Intangible Assets (in a Business Combination): Stakeholder Feedback
User Relevance Some question that the requirement for separate recognition & measurement of certain identifiable intangible assets from goodwill does not provide users with decision-useful information Cost & Complexity Estimating fair value of certain assets, including some identifiable intangible assets, e.g. customer relationships

47 Identifiable Intangible Assets: Proposal
At April 29 meeting, PCC discussed various alternatives, including: Recognizing & measuring only intangible assets capable of being sold or licensed independently Principle-based vs rules-based approach Next steps: directed staff to perform more analysis and outreach
