ACCOUNTING STANDARDS UPDATE
ASU 2014-09 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): The amendments in ASU 2014-09 supersede the revenue recognition requirements in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, and most industry-specific guidance. The general principle of the amendments require an entity to recognize revenue upon the 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. The guidance sets forth a five step approach to be utilized for revenue recognition. The amendments were originally effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period. Subsequently, the FASB issued a one-year deferral for implementation, which results in new guidance being effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The FASB, however, permitted adoption of the new guidance on the original effective date. Management is currently assessing the impact on Huntington’s Consolidated Financial Statements.
ASU 2015-02 - Consolidation (Topic 810)-Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis. This Update provides a new scope exception for registered money market funds and similar unregistered money market funds, provides targeted amendments to the current consolidation guidance, and ends the deferral granted to investment companies from applying the variable interest entity accounting guidance. This amendment was effective during the current reporting period and did not have a significant impact on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
ASU 2015-03 - Imputation of Interest (Topic 835): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs. This Update was issued to simplify the presentation of debt issuance costs. The amendments require debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction to the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. The amendment was effective during the current reporting period and did not have a significant impact on Huntington’s Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. For more information, refer to Note 8 “Long-Term Debt”.
ASU 2015-10 - Technical Corrections and Improvements. This Update sets forth certain technical corrections and improvements issued in June 2015 with an objective to clarify the Accounting Standards Codification (“Codification”), correct unintended application of guidance, or make minor improvements to the ASU, among other things, requires disclosure of fair value for non-recurring items at the relevant measurement date where the fair value is not measured at the end of the reporting period. Also, for nonrecurring measurements estimated at a date during the reporting period other than the end of the reporting period, a reporting entity is required to clearly indicate that the fair value information presented is not as of the period’s end. The technical correction for fair value disclosure was effective upon issuance and did not have a significant impact on Huntington’s Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
ASU 2015-16 - Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments. This Update requires an acquirer to recognize adjustments to provisional amounts that are identified during the measurement period in the reporting period in which the adjustment amounts are determined. The acquirer is required to record, in the same period’s financial statements, the effect on earnings of changes in depreciation, amortization, or other income effects, if any, as a result of the change to the provisional amounts, calculated as if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date. The amendments also require an entity to present separately on the face of the income statement, or disclose in the notes, the portion of the amount recorded in current-period earnings by line item that would have been recorded in previous reporting periods if the adjustment to the provisional amounts had been recognized as of the acquisition date. This Update is effective for the current reporting period and did not have a significant impact on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
ASU 2016-01 - Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. This Update sets forth targeted improvements to GAAP including, but not limited to, requiring an entity to recognize the changes in fair value of equity investments in the income statement, requiring public business entities to use the exit price when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for financial statement disclosure purposes, eliminating certain disclosures required by existing GAAP, and providing for additional disclosures. The Update is effective for the fiscal period beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. A cumulative-effect adjustment to the balance sheet will be required as of the beginning of the fiscal year upon adoption. The Update is not expected to have a significant impact on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
ASU 2016-02 - Leases. This Update sets forth a new lease accounting model for lessors and lessees. For lessees, all leases will be required to be recognized on the balance sheet by recording a right-of-use asset Subsequent accounting for leases varies depending on whether the lease is an operating lease or a finance lease. The accounting applied by a lessor is largely unchanged from that applied under the existing guidance. The ASU 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. The Update is effective for the fiscal period beginning after December 15, 2018, with early application permitted. Management is currently assessing the impact of the new guidance on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
ASU 2016-05 - Effect of Derivative Contract Novations on Existing Hedge Accounting Relationships. This Update provides accounting clarification for changes in the counterparty to a derivative instrument that has been designated as a qualified hedging instrument. Specifically, changes in the derivative counterparty should not, in and of itself, require de-designation of that hedging relationship provided that all other hedge accounting criteria continue to be met. This Update is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early application is permitted. An entity has an option to apply the amendments in this Update on either a prospective basis or a modified retrospective basis. Management does not believe the new guidance will have a significant impact on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
ASU 2016-06 - Contingent Put and Call Options in Debt Instruments. This Update clarifies the requirements for assessing whether contingent call (put) options that can accelerate the payment of principal on debt instruments are clearly and closely related to their debt instruments. An entity performing the assessment set forth in this Update will be required to assess embedded call (put) options solely in accordance with the four-step decision sequence. This Update is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. An entity should apply this Update on a modified retrospective basis to existing debt instruments as of the beginning of the fiscal year for which the amendments are effective. This Update is not expected to have a significant impact on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
ASU 2016-07 - Simplifying the Transition to the Equity Method of Accounting. This Update eliminates the requirement for the retrospective use of the equity method of accounting as a result of an increase in the level of ownership interest or degree of influence of an investor. The amendments require that the equity method investor add the cost of acquiring the additional interest in the investee to the current basis of the investor’s previously held interest and adopt the equity method of accounting as of the date the investment becomes qualified for the equity method accounting. This Update is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2016. The amendments are not expected to have a significant impact on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
ASU 2016-09 - Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. This Update simplifies several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification in the statement of cash flows. The amendments, among other things, require all tax benefits and tax deficiencies related to share-based award to be recognized in the income statement. Other changes include an election related to the accounting for forfeitures, changes to the cash flow statement presentation for excess tax benefits, as well as for cash paid by an employer when directly withholding shares for tax withholding purposes. The amendments are effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted for any entity in any interim or annual period. Management is currently assessing the impact of this Update on Huntington's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
