Summary of guidance

ASU 2016-02 - Leases.
Issued February 2016

- New lease accounting model for lessors and lessees. For lessees, virtually all leases will be required to be recognized on the balance sheet by recording a right-of-use asset and lease liability. Subsequent accounting for leases varies depending on whether the lease is classified as an operating lease or a finance lease.

- Accounting applied by a lessor is largely unchanged from that applied under the existing guidance.

- Requires additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures with the objective of enabling users of financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases.
- Effective for the fiscal period beginning after December 15, 2018, with early application permitted.

- Management intends to adopt the guidance on January 1, 2019, and has formed a working group comprised of associates from different disciplines, including Procurement, Real Estate, and Credit Administration, to evaluate the impact of the standard where Huntington is a lessee or lessor, as well as any impact to borrower’s financial statements.

- Management is currently assessing the impact of the new guidance on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, including working with associates engaged in the procurement of goods and services used in the entity’s operations, and reviewing contractual arrangements for embedded leases in an effort to identify Huntington’s full lease population.

- Huntington will recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities for virtually all of its operating lease commitments. The amounts of right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities recorded upon adoption will be based, primarily, on the present value of unpaid future minimum lease payments as of January 1, 2019. Those amounts will also be impacted by assumptions around renewals and/or extensions, and the interest rate used to discount those future lease obligations. As of December 31, 2017, the Company reported approximately $315 million in minimum lease payments due under such agreements January 1, 2019 forward. While these leases represent a majority of the leases within the scope of the standard, the lease portfolio is subject to change as a result of the execution of new leases and termination of existing leases prior to the effective date, as well as the identification of potential embedded and other leases.
ASU 2016-13 - Financial Instruments - Credit Losses.
Issued June 2016
- Eliminates the probable recognition threshold for credit losses on financial assets measured at amortized cost.

- Requires those financial assets to be presented at the net amount expected to be collected (i.e., net of expected credit losses).

- Measurement of expected credit losses should be based on relevant information about past events, including historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectibility of the reported amount.
- Effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018.

- Adoption will be applied through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective.

- Management intends to adopt the guidance on January 1, 2020 and has formed a working group comprised of teams from different disciplines including credit, finance, and risk management to evaluate the requirements of the new standard and the impact it will have on our processes.

- Huntington is currently in the process of developing credit models as well as accounting, reporting, and governance processes to comply with the new credit reserve requirements.
Summary of guidance
Effects on financial statements
ASU 2017-04 - Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment.
Issued January 2017
- Simplifies the goodwill impairment test by eliminating Step 2 of the goodwill impairment process, which requires an entity to determine the implied fair value of its goodwill by assigning fair value to all its assets and liabilities.

- Entities will instead recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit's fair value.

- Entities will still have the option to perform the qualitative assessment for a reporting unit to determine if the quantitative impairment test is necessary.
- Effective for annual and interim goodwill tests performed in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted.

- The amendment is not expected to have a significant impact on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Revenue Recognition
Huntington recognizes revenue when the performance obligations related to the transfer of goods or services under the terms of a contract are satisfied. Some obligations are satisfied at a point in time while others are satisfied over a period of time. Revenue is recognized as the amount of consideration to which Huntington expects to be entitled to in exchange for transferring goods or services to a customer. When consideration includes a variable component, the amount of consideration attributable to variability is included in the transaction price only to the extent it is probable that significant revenue recognized will not be reversed when uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is subsequently resolved. Generally, the variability relating to the consideration is explicitly stated in the contracts, but may also arise from Huntington's customer business practice, for example, waiving certain fees related to customer’s deposit accounts such as NSF fees. Huntington's contracts generally do not contain terms that require significant judgement to determine the variability impacting the transaction price.
Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration Huntington expects to be entitled to in exchange for transferring goods or services. Revenue is segregated based on the nature of product and services offered as part of contractual arrangements. Revenue from contracts with customers is broadly segregated as follows:
Service charges on deposit accounts include fees and other charges Huntington receives to provide various services, including but not limited to, maintaining an account with a customer, providing overdraft services, wire transfer, transferring funds, and accepting and executing stop-payment orders. The consideration includes both fixed (e.g., account maintenance fee) and transaction fees (e.g., wire-transfer fee). The fixed fee is recognized over a period of time while the transaction fee is recognized when a specific service (e.g., execution of wire-transfer) is rendered to the customer. Huntington may, from time to time, waive certain fees (e.g., NSF fee) for customers but generally does not reduce the transaction price to reflect variability for future reversals due to the insignificance of the amounts. Waiver of fees reduces the revenue in the period the waiver is granted to the customer.
Cards and payment processing income includes interchange fees earned on debit cards and credit cards. All other fees (e.g. annual fees), and interest income are recognized in accordance with ASC 310. Huntington recognizes interchange fees for services performed related to authorization and settlement of a cardholder’s transaction with a merchant. Revenue is recognized when a cardholder’s transaction is approved and settled. The revenue may be constrained due to inherent uncertainty related to cardholder’s right to return goods and services but the uncertainty is resolved within a short period of time (generally within 30 days) and the amount of returns was not material for the reporting period ended June 30, 2018. Revenue is not adjusted for such variability, rather returns reduce the amount of interchange revenue in the period the return is made by the customer.
Certain volume or transaction based interchange expenses (net of rebates) paid to the payment network reduce the interchange revenue and are presented net on the income statement. Similarly, rewards payable under a reward program to cardholders are recognized as a reduction of the transaction price and are presented net against the interchange revenue.
Trust and investment management services includes fee income generated from personal, corporate and institutional customers. Huntington also provides investment management services, cash management services and tax reporting to customers. Services are rendered over a period of time, over which revenue is recognized. Huntington may also recognize revenue from referring a customer to outside third-parties including mutual fund companies that pay distribution (12b-1) fees and other expenses. 12b-1 fees are received upon initially placing account holder’s funds with a mutual fund company as well as in the future periods as long as the account holder (i.e., the fund investor), remains invested in the fund. The transaction price includes variable consideration which is considered constrained as it is not probable that a significant revenue reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur. Accordingly, those fees are recognized as revenue when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is subsequently resolved, that is, initial fees are recognized in the initial period while the future fees are recognized in future periods.
Insurance income includes agency commissions that are recognized when Huntington sells insurance policies to customers. Huntington is also entitled to renewal commissions and, in some cases, profit sharing which are recognized in subsequent periods. The initial commission is recognized when the insurance policy is sold to a customer. Renewal commission is variable consideration and is recognized in subsequent periods when the uncertainty around variable consideration is subsequently resolved (i.e., when customer renews the policy). Profit sharing is also a variable consideration that is not recognized until the variability surrounding realization of revenue is resolved (i.e., Huntington have reached a minimum volume of sales). Another source of variability is the ability of the policy holder to cancel the policy anytime and in such cases, Huntington may be required, under the terms of the contract, to return part of the commission received. The variability related to cancellation of the policy is not deemed significant and thus, does not impact the amount of revenue recognized. In the event the policyholder chooses to cancel the policy at any time, the revenue for amounts which qualify for claw-back are reversed in the period the cancellation occurs.
Other noninterest income includes a variety of other revenue streams including capital markets revenue, consumer fees and marketing allowance revenue. Revenue is recognized when, or as, a performance obligation is satisfied. Inherent variability in the transaction price is not recognized until the uncertainty affecting the variability is resolved.
Control is transferred to a customer either at a point in time or over time. A performance obligation is deemed satisfied when the control over goods or services is transferred to the customer. To determine when control is transferred at a point in time, Huntington considers indicators, including but not limited to the right to payment for the asset, transfer of significant risk and rewards of ownership of the asset and acceptance of asset by the customer. When control is transferred over a period of time, for different performance obligations, either the input or output method is used to determine the progress. The measure of progress used to assess completion of the performance obligation varies between performance obligations and may be based on time throughout the period of service or on the value of goods and services transferred to the customer. As each distinct service or activity is performed, Huntington transfers control to the customer based on the services performed as the customer simultaneously receives the benefits of those services. This timing of revenue recognition aligns with the resolution of any uncertainty related to variable consideration. Costs incurred to obtain a revenue producing contract is expensed when incurred as a practical expedient as the contractual period for majority of contracts is one year or less.
Revenue is recorded in the business segment responsible for the related product or service. Fee sharing arrangements exist to allocate portions of such revenue to other business segments involved in selling to, or providing service to, customers. Business segment results are determined based upon management's reporting system, which assigns balance sheet and income statement items to each of the business segments. The process is designed around Huntington's organizational and management structure and, accordingly, the results derived are not necessarily comparable with similar information published by other financial institutions.
