Presentation of Comprehensive Income
In June 2011, the FASB issued an Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) related to the presentation of comprehensive income. This ASU amends the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“Codification”) to allow an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. This ASU eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. The amendments to the Codification in the ASU do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material effect on our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows.
Testing for Goodwill Impairment
In September 2011, the FASB issued an ASU that permits an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the two-step goodwill impairment test. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this ASU did not have a significant impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.
