Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). ASU No. 2014-09 requires entities to recognize revenue to depict transfer of promised 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. ASU No. 2014-09 requires entities to disclose both qualitative and quantitative information that enables users of the consolidated financial statements to understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers, including disclosure of significant judgments affecting the recognition of revenue. ASU No. 2014-09 was effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, using either the full retrospective or modified retrospective method. We adopted ASU No. 2014-09 effective January 1, 2018, using the modified retrospective method. The adoption of this guidance had no impact on our prior period results of operations. This is because prior to the effective date of the new revenue guidance, substantially all of our performance obligations per our contracts with customers, except for hydraulic fracturing, were completed at a point-in-time, and revenue recognized when control was transferred to the customers, which is consistent with ASU No. 2014-09. Our hydraulic fracturing segment performance obligation is satisfied over time. Prior to the effective date of the new revenue standards, our hydraulic fracturing segment revenue was recognized based on actual stages completed, i.e. using the output method, which faithfully depicts how our services are transferred over time to our customers and is consistent with the requirements of the new guidance, ASU No. 2014-09. Accordingly, no adjustments to our consolidated financial statements were required, other than the additional disclosures included as part of Note 1 in these condensed consolidated financial statements.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases. This ASU introduces a lessee model that brings most leases on the balance sheet. This new standard increases transparency and comparability by recognizing a lessee’s rights and obligations resulting from leases by recording them on the balance sheet as Right of Use ("ROU") Assets and Lease Liabilities. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, which will impact the pattern of expense recognition on the income statement. This ASU eliminates the use of bright-line tests in determining lease classification as required in the current guidance. This ASU also requires additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures to better enable users of financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. This ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, using a modified retrospective approach. Early adoption is permitted. We are in the process of finalizing the impact this guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements. Per our analysis thus far, we do not expect this new guidance to have a material impact on our results of operations. We will however, record the balance sheet impact associated with ROU assets and lease liabilities resulting from our leases. Additionally, we intend to adopt the modified retrospective approach with an election to implement the guidance only in our 2019 consolidated financial statements, which is the year it becomes effective for us.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment, which removes the requirement to compare the implied fair value of goodwill with its carrying amount as part of step two of the goodwill impairment test. As a result, under this ASU, an entity would recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit's fair value. Although, the loss recognized should not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. This ASU is effective for impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, on a prospective basis. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. We believe that the adoption of this guidance will not materially affect our consolidated financial statements.
The entire disclosure of changes in accounting principles, including adoption of new accounting pronouncements, that describes the new methods, amount and effects on financial statement line items.
