NOTE 3 – RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS


In June 2018, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2018-07 Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718), Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. This ASU is intended to simplify aspects of share-based compensation issued to non-employees by making the guidance consistent with employee share-based compensation. It is effective for annual reporting periods and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company has adopted this standard and realized no material impact of the adoption of ASU 2018-07 on its consolidated financial statements.



In February 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The new standard requires lessees to apply a dual approach, classifying leases as either finance or operating leases based on the principle of whether or not the lease is effectively a financed purchase by the lessee. This classification will determine whether lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. A lessee is also required to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months regardless of their classification. Leases with a term of 12 months or less will be accounted for similar to existing guidance for operating leases. The new guidance will be effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that reporting period and is applied retrospectively. The Company has adopted this standard effective January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective model. Discussion of the impact of this standard is included in Note 4 – Operating Lease.



There are several other new accounting pronouncements issued or proposed by the FASB. Each of these pronouncements, as applicable, has been or will be adopted by the Company. Management does not believe any of these accounting pronouncements has had or will have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position or operating results.
