Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation - Stock compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting (“ASU 2016-09”). ASU 2016-09 simplifies several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities and classification on the statement of cash flows. We adopted ASU 2016-09 in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 using multiple transition approaches in-line with the requirements. Our tax windfall benefits are reported in the statement of operations instead of equity to the extent we do not have an offsetting valuation allowance and such benefits are recorded within our deferred taxes.  There were no other changes based upon the new guidance. The adoption of ASU 2016-09 did not impact our statements of financial condition, results of operations, cash flows or financial statement disclosures.  

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, Inventory (Topic 330) (“ASU 2015-11”). ASU 2015-11 requires that an entity measure all inventory at the lower of cost and net realizable value, except for inventory that is measured using last-in, first-out (LIFO) or the retail inventory method. We adopted ASU 2015-11 prospectively in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 and adoption did not impact our statements of financial condition, results of operations, cash flows or financial statement disclosures.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments - Overall (Topic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities (“ASU 2016-01”). ASU 2016-01 addresses certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosures of financial instruments. ASU 2016-01 will become effective for us beginning April 1, 2018, or fiscal 2019. We must apply the provisions using a cumulative-effect adjustment to the balance sheet at the beginning of the year of adoption, or April 1, 2018. We are currently assessing what financial instruments are being impacted and the extent of the potential impact on our statements of financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and financial statement disclosures.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASU 2016-02”). ASU 2016-02 provides a new comprehensive model for lease accounting. Under ASU 2016-02, lessees and lessors should apply a “right-of-use” model in accounting for all leases and eliminate the concept of operating leases and off-balance sheet leases. ASU 2016-02 will become effective for us beginning April 1, 2019, or fiscal 2020. ASU 2016-02 requires a modified retrospective transition approach with certain practical expedients available. We have identified all of our current leases subject to ASU 2016-02. We are in the process of evaluating these agreements to determine the impact on our statements of financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and financial statement disclosures.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Receipts and Cash Payments (“ASU 2016-15”). ASU 2016-15 provides guidance on the following eight specific cash flow issues: 1) debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs, 2) settlement of zero-coupon debt instruments or other debt instruments with coupon interest rates that are insignificant in relation to the effective interest rate of the borrowing, 3) contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, 4) proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, 5) proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance policies, including bank-owned life insurance policies, 6) distributions received from equity method investees, 7) beneficial interests in securitization transactions and 8) separately identifiable cash flows and application of the predominance principle. ASU 2016-15 transition requires the use of the retrospective method for all periods presented and will become effective for us beginning April 1, 2018, or fiscal 2019. We have evaluated the types of transactions impacted by ASU 2016-15 and at this time, and anticipate the only impact is related to the our debt extinguishment costs. As such, we do not anticipate the adoption of ASU 2016-15 will have a material impact on our statements of cash flows.

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-16, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other Than Inventory (“ASU 2016-16”). ASU 2016-16 requires that an entity recognize the income tax consequences of an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory when the transfer occurs. ASU 2016-16 will become effective for us beginning April 1, 2018, or fiscal 2019. ASU 2016-16 requires the modified retrospective transition approach with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings at the beginning of the period of adoption. We currently do not have any material intra-entity transfers of assets and therefore we do not anticipate that adoption will have a material impact on our statements of financial condition, results of operations, cash flows or financial statement disclosures.

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Restricted Cash (“ASU 2016-18”). ASU 2016-18 requires that a statement of cash flows explain the change during the period in the total of cash, cash equivalents, and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. ASU 2016-18 will become effective for us beginning April 1, 2018, or fiscal 2019. ASU 2016-18 is required to be applied retrospectively. Upon the adoption, amounts described as restricted cash will be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period amounts shown on the statements of cash flows.

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting. The ASU provides guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting in Topic 718. ASU 2017-09 will become effective for us beginning April 1, 2018, or fiscal 2019 and interim and interim periods within those years and is to be applied prospectively to an award modified on or after the adoption date. As we currently do not have a practice of modifying our stock based awards and have no plans to do so in the future, we do not anticipate adoption will have a material impact on our statements of financial condition, results of operations, cash flows or financial statement disclosures.

The FASB issued the following accounting standard updates related to its revenue convergence project:

ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“ASU 2014-09”) in May 2014. ASU 2014-09 requires entities to recognize revenue through the application of a five-step model, which includes identification of the contract, identification of the performance obligations, determination of the transaction price, allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations and recognition of revenue as the entity satisfies the performance obligations.
ASU No. 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net) (“ASU 2016-08”) in March 2016. ASU 2016-08 does not change the core principle of revenue recognition in Topic 606 but clarifies the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations.
ASU No. 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing (“ASU 2016-10”) in April 2016. ASU 2016-10 does not change the core principle of revenue recognition in Topic 606 but clarifies the implementation guidance on identifying performance obligations and the licensing implementation guidance, while retaining the related principles for those areas. ASU No. 2016-11, Revenue Recognition (Topic 605) and Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Rescission of SEC Guidance Because of Accounting Standards Updates 2014-09 and 2014-16 Pursuant to Staff Announcements at the March 3, 2016 EITF Meeting (SEC Update) (“ASU 2016-11”) in May 2016. ASU 2016-11 rescinds SEC paragraphs pursuant to two SEC Staff Announcements at the March 3, 2016 EITF meeting. The SEC Staff is rescinding SEC Staff Observer comments that are codified in Topic 605 and Topic 932, effective upon adoption of Topic 606.
ASU No. 2016-12, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients in May 2016. ASU 2016-12 does not change the core principle of revenue recognition in Topic 606 but clarifies the implementation guidance on a few narrow areas and adds some practical expedients to the guidance.

These ASUs will become effective for us beginning April 1, 2018, or fiscal 2019. ASU 2014-09 and the related ASUs allow for
either a retrospective or a modified retrospective transition approach. The Company has elected to use a modified retrospective method. We have completed our initial assessment of the changes in our revenue recognition accounting policies for the new revenue standards. Our accounting for commission costs related to our service agreements will change from recognition in the period incurred to the deferral and recognition over the services are provided. Other costs such as warranty costs and our accounting for our rebate programs ("variable consideration") will not materially change. We have identified our performance obligations and have established the related standalone selling prices for the distinct goods and services underlying the obligations. We are currently configuring our system to meet our business requirements and upon completion, we will process the Company’s historical revenue transactions which will enable us to assess the overall impact of the adoption of Topic 606 on our financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and financial statement disclosures.
