SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
There have been no significant changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies as described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, except as described in Note 1 under Changes affecting comparability.
Impairment of Long-lived Assets
Long-lived assets are amortized over their estimated useful lives and are measured for impairment only when events or circumstances indicate the carrying value may be impaired. In these cases, the Company estimates the future undiscounted cash flows to be derived from the asset or asset group to determine whether a potential impairment exists. If the sum of the estimated undiscounted cash flows is less than the carrying value of the asset, the Company recognizes an impairment loss, measured as the amount by which the carrying value exceeds the estimated fair value of the asset. Impairment charges for long-lived assets are included in selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense and were $3,258,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. These charges were recorded in the United States segment for certain underperforming retail stores. There were no such charges for the three months ended September 30, 2016 or the nine months ended September 30, 2015.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Topic 606. ASU 2014-09 outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance. The FASB continues to clarify this guidance and most recently issued ASU 2016-08, Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net), ASU No. 2016-10, Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing, and ASU No. 2016-12, Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients, which have the same effective date as ASU 2014-09. These new standards will become effective beginning in the first quarter of 2018 and can be adopted either retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented or as a cumulative effect adjustment as of the date of adoption. The Company has not yet selected a transition method and continues to evaluate the expected impacts on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, an update to their accounting guidance related to the recognition and measurement of certain financial instruments. This new standard requires equity investments that are not accounted for under the equity method of accounting to be measured at fair value with changes recognized in net income and also updates certain presentation and disclosure requirements. This standard is effective beginning in the first quarter of 2018 with early adoption permitted. The adoption of ASU 2016-01 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases: Topic 842, in order to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet for those leases previously classified as operating leases. The new standard will become effective beginning with the first quarter of 2019 using a modified retrospective approach and early adoption is permitted. The Company expects that this standard will have a material impact on its consolidated balance sheet and is currently evaluating the impact.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments: Credit Losses Topic 326: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The pronouncement changes the impairment model for most financial assets, and will require the use of an "expected loss" model for instruments measured at amortized cost. Under this model, entities will be required to estimate the lifetime expected credit loss on such instruments and record an allowance to offset the amortized cost basis of the financial asset, resulting in a net presentation of the amount expected to be collected on the financial asset. This standard is effective beginning in the first quarter of 2020. The adoption of ASU 2016-13 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Effective December 31, 2015, the Company adopted ASU 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes: Topic 740. See Changes affecting comparability under Note 1.
Effective January 1, 2016, the Company adopted ASU 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting: Topic 718. See Changes affecting comparability under Note 1.
