Recently Issued Accounting Standards Adopted in 2019
            In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standard Update ("ASU") No. 2016-02, Leases. This new leases standard 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 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. Effective January 1, 2019, we adopted the new leases standard using the modified retrospective transition method and electing to account for comparative periods under legacy GAAP. We also elected other practical expedients provided by the new leases standard, the short-term lease recognition practical expedient in which leases with an initial term of 12 months or less will not be recognized on the balance sheet and the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components for our real estate class of leased assets. See Note 9 for additional disclosures relating to our adoption of ASU 2016-02.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted in 2019
            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.
