In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). Under the update, revenue will be recognized based on a five-step model. The core principle of the model is that revenue will be recognized when the transfer of promised goods or services to customers is made in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In the third quarter of 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date of the standard to annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption will be permitted for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that adopting this ASU will have on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, Interest - Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30). Under this update, the cost of issuing debt will no longer be recorded as a separate asset, unless it is incurred before the receipt of the funding from the associated debt liability. Instead, debt issuance costs will be presented as a direct deduction from the debt liability, similar to the presentation of debt discounts. The costs will continue to be amortized to interest expense using the effective interest rate method. The ASU requires retrospective application to all prior periods presented in the financial statements and is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2015. The Company elected to early adopt the ASU for the financial statements ending December 31, 2015, The change reclassified $20,918,000 from other assets net to long-term debt on the consolidated balance sheet for the period ending December 31, 2014. The adoption of the ASU did not impact results of operations or cash flows.

In September 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-16, Business Combinations (Topic 805). Under the update, an acquirer in a business combination is no longer required to account for measurement-period adjustments retrospectively, and, instead, will recognize a measurement-period adjustment during the period in which it determines the amount of the adjustment. The effective date of the standard is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those years. The Company does not expect the impact of adopting this ASU to be material to the Company's financial statements and related disclosures.

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, Income Taxes (Topic 740), Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes. Under the update, deferred taxes would be classified as noncurrent in the statement of financial position instead of being separated into current and non-current amounts. The ASU is effective for financial statements issued after January 1, 2017 with early adoption permitted. Additionally, the Company may apply the standard either prospectively or retrospectively. The Company elected to early adopt the ASU for the financial statements ending December 31, 2015 and to apply the change retrospectively. The change reclassified $6,567,000 from the current asset for deferred income taxes, net to the non-current deferred income tax liability, Net for the period ending December 31, 2014 on the consolidated balance sheet. The adoption of the ASU did not impact results of operations or cash flows.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) ("ASU 2016-02"). ASU 2016-02 requires the lessee to recognize assets and liabilities for leases with lease terms of more than twelve months. For leases with a term of twelve months or less, the Company is permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset not to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. Further, the lease requires a finance lease to recognize both an interest expense and an amortization of the associated expense. Operating leases generally recognize the associated expense on a straight line basis. ASU 2016-02 requires the Company to adopt the standard using a modified retrospective approach and adoption beginning on January 1, 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that ASU 2016-02 will have on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
