Revenue recognition –
In May 2014, the FASB issued guidance regarding the recognition of revenue from contracts with customers. Under this guidance, an entity will recognize revenue to depict the transfer of 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. A five step process will be utilized to recognize revenue, as follows: (i) identify the contract with a customer, (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (iii) determine the transaction price, (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. Additionally, this guidance requires improved disclosures regarding the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. We are required to adopt this guidance for our annual and interim periods beginning March 1, 2017, utilizing one of two methods: retrospective restatement for each reporting period presented at time of adoption, or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying this guidance recognized at the date of initial application. In April 2015, the FASB agreed to propose a one-year deferral of the revenue recognition standard’s effective date for all entities. We are currently assessing the financial impact of this guidance on our consolidated financial statements.
