Note 12 - Upcoming Accounting Standards
In February 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02,
s, which will supersede the current lease requirements in ASC 840. The ASU requires lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and related lease liability for all leases, with a limited exception for short-term leases. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with the classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the statement of operations. Currently, leases are classified as either capital or operating, with only capital leases recognized on the balance sheet. The reporting of lease-related expenses in the statements of operations and cash flows will be generally consistent with the current guidance. The new lease guidance will be effective for the Bancorp's year ending December 31, 2019 and will be applied using a modified retrospective transition method to the beginning of the earliest period presented. Management does not believe the adoption of this update will have a material effect on the Bancorp’s consolidated financial statements, as the Bancorp does not engage in the leasing of property or in leasing of any significant furniture, fixtures, equipment, or software.
In June 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13,
Financial Instruments - Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments
. The ASU includes increased disclosures and various changes to the accounting and measurement of financial assets including the Bancorp’s loans and available-for-sale and held-to-maturity debt securities. Each financial asset presented on the balance sheet would have a unique allowance for credit losses valuation account that is deducted from the amortized cost basis to present the net carrying value at the amount expected to be collected on the financial asset. The amendments in this ASU also eliminate the probable initial recognition threshold in current GAAP and instead, reflect an entity’s current estimate of all expected credit losses using reasonable and supportable forecasts. The new credit loss guidance will be effective for the Bancorp's year ending December 31, 2020. Upon adoption, the ASU will be applied using a modified retrospective transition method to the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. A prospective transition approach is required for debt securities for which an other-than-temporary impairment had been recognized before the effective date. Early adoption for all institutions is permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Management is in the process of evaluating the impact adoption of this update will have on the Bancorp’s consolidated financial statements. This process of evaluation has engaged multiple areas of the Bancorp’s management in discussing loss estimation methods and the application of these methods to specific segments of the loans receivable portfolio. Given the amount of time left to adoption, the appropriateness of the loss estimation methods chosen, and the continuing development of understanding of application, additional time is needed to fully understand how this ASU will impact the Bancorp’s financial statements.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04,
Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment
. This Standard simplifies the manner in which an entity is required to test goodwill for impairment by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. Step 2 measures a goodwill impairment loss by comparing the implied fair value of a reporting unit’s goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill. In computing the implied fair value of goodwill under Step 2, an entity, prior to the amendments in ASU No. 2017-04, had to perform procedures to determine the fair value at the impairment testing date of its assets and liabilities, including unrecognized assets and liabilities, in accordance with the procedure that would be required in determining the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. However, under the amendments in this ASU, an entity should (1) perform its annual or interim goodwill impairment test by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount, and (2) recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value, with the understanding that the loss recognized should not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. Additionally, ASU No. 2017-04 removes the requirements for any reporting unit with a zero or negative carrying amount to perform a qualitative assessment and, if it fails such qualitative test, to perform Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test. Finally, this ASU amends the Overview and Background sections of the Accounting Standards Codification as part of the FASB’s initiative to unify and improve such sections across Topics and Subtopics. The new guidance will be effective for the Company’s year ending December 31, 2020.
In March 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-08,
Receivables—Nonrefundable Fees and Other Costs (Subtopic 310-20): Premium Amortization on Purchased Callable Debt Securities
. This Standard amends the amortization period for certain purchased callable debt securities held at a premium. In particular, the amendments in this ASU require the premium to be amortized to the earliest call date. The amendments do not, however, require an accounting change for securities held at a discount; instead, the discount continues to be amortized to maturity. The amendments in this ASU more closely align the amortization period of premiums and discounts to expectations incorporated in market pricing on the underlying securities. In fact, in most cases, market participants price securities to the call date that produces the worst yield when the coupon is above current market rates (i.e., the security is trading at a premium), and price securities to maturity when the coupon is below market rates (i.e., the security is trading at a discount), in anticipation that the borrower will act in its economic best interest. The new guidance will be effective for the Company’s year ending December 31, 2020. Management will recognize amortization expense as dictated by the amount of premiums and the differences between maturity and call dates at the time of adoption.
