Recently adopted standards


In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which is effective for public companies for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Topic 842 establishes a right-of-use model that requires a lessee to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability, measured on a discounted basis, on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases are to be classified as either finance or operating leases, with such classification affecting the pattern or expense recognition in the statement of operations. We adopted this new standard as of January 1, 2019, by using the alternative modified transition method. See Note 3, Significant Accounting Policies, for more details.
