On May 10, 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2017-09 Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718). The ASU seeks to clarify which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting under Topic 718. The ASU requires that such changes be accounted for as a modification unless the modified award’s fair value (or calculated/intrinsic value), vesting conditions and classification as an equity or liability instrument are the same as those for the original award immediately prior to the modification.
The current disclosure requirements in Topic 718 remain unchanged and apply regardless of whether modification accounting is applied.
The amendments are effective for all entities for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods therein, and should be applied prospectively to an award modified on or after the adoption date.
Early adoption, including in any interim period, is permitted as follows:
