NOTE 3 – ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

Except as discussed below, there have been no recent accounting pronouncements or changes in accounting pronouncements during the three months ended March 31, 2022, as compared to the recent accounting pronouncements described in the Annual Report, that are of significance, or potential significance to the Company.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) and subsequent amendments to the initial guidance: ASU 2017-13, ASU 2018-10, ASU 2018-11, ASU 2018-20, ASU 2019-01 and ASU 2020-02 (collectively, “ASC 842”). ASC 842 requires companies to generally recognize on the balance sheet operating and financing lease liabilities and corresponding right-of-use assets. On January 1, 2022, the Company adopted ASC 842, using the modified retrospective with applied transition method and recognized a cumulative impact to retained earnings in that period, which allowed the Company to continue to apply the legacy guidance in Topic 840, Leases, including its disclosure requirements, in the comparative periods presented in the year of adoption. The Company elected to apply certain practical expedients, whereby it will not reassess (i) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (ii) the lease classification for any expired or existing leases and (iii) initial direct costs for any existing leases.

On January 1, 2022, upon adoption of the new leasing standard, the Company recognized operating right-of-use assets of $1.6 million and operating lease liabilities of $1.6 million. On January 1, 2022, the Company recognized finance lease right-of-use assets of $3.6 million, reclassified from property and equipment, net and finance lease liabilities of $3.8 million, including $3.2 million reclassified from current and long-term capital lease obligations. The impact of adoption of the new leasing standard had no impact to the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which removes specific exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 in GAAP. The new guidance also improves the issuer’s application of income tax-related guidance and simplifies GAAP for franchise taxes that are partially based on income, transactions with a government that result in a step up in the tax basis of goodwill, separate financial statements of legal entities that are not subject to tax, and enacted changes in tax laws in interim periods. The Company adopted ASU 2019-12 on January 1, 2022, using the prospective method of transition. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity, which simplifies accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models required under current GAAP. It also amends the accounting for certain contracts in an entity’s own equity that are currently accounted for as derivatives because of specific settlement provisions. In addition, the new guidance modifies how particular convertible instruments and certain contracts that may be settled in cash or shares impact the diluted EPS computation. The new guidance will be effective for smaller reporting companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 on January 1, 2022, using the modified retrospective method of transition. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.
