Note (7) - Recently Adopted Accounting Guidance:

In October 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2009-13, “Revenue Recognition (Topic 605) – Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements,” which amends the revenue recognition for multiple-element arrangements and expands the disclosure requirements related to such arrangements. The new guidance amends the criteria for separating consideration in multiple-deliverable arrangements, establishes a selling price hierarchy for determining the selling price of a deliverable, eliminates the residual method of allocation, and requires the application of relative selling price method in allocating the arrangement consideration to all deliverables. The Company adopted this accounting guidance beginning July 1, 2010. The adoption of this accounting guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-06, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (Topic 820): Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements” (“ASU 2010-06”). ASU 2010-06 amends Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820 (“ASC 820”) and clarifies and provides additional disclosure requirements on the transfers of assets and liabilities between Level 1 (quoted prices in active market for identical assets or liabilities) and Level 2 (significant other observable inputs) of the fair value measurement hierarchy, including the reasons for and the timing of the transfers. Additionally, the guidance requires a roll forward of activities on purchases, sales, issuance, and settlements of the assets and liabilities measured using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3 fair value measurements). ASU 2010-06 became effective for the Company beginning July 1, 2010, except for the gross presentation of the Level 3 roll forward, which is required for annual reporting periods beginning for the Company on July 1, 2011 and for interim reporting periods thereafter. Early application was permitted and comparative disclosures were not required in the period of initial adoption. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In July 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-20, “Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Loss” (“ASU 2010-20”). ASU 2010-20 amends ASC Topic 310, “Receivables” to enhance disclosures about the credit quality of financing receivables and the allowance for credit losses by requiring an entity to provide a greater level of disaggregated information and to disclose credit quality indicators, past due information, and modifications of its financing receivables. ASU 2010-20 is effective for interim or annual fiscal years for the Company beginning January 1, 2011. The Company’s adoption of ASU 2010-20 did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements

In April 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-02, “Receivables (Topic 310): A Creditor’s Determination of Whether a Restructuring Is a Troubled Debt Restructuring” (“ASU 2011-02”). ASU 2011-02 provides additional guidance clarifying when the restructuring of a receivable should be considered a troubled debt restructuring. The additional guidance provided by ASU 2011-02 is for determining whether a creditor has granted a concession and whether the debtor is experiencing financial difficulty. ASU 2011-02 also ends the deferral of activity-based disclosures related to troubled debt restructurings. The Company adopted ASU 2011-02 in the third quarter of 2011. The adoption of ASU 2011-02 did not impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-04, “Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs” (“ASU 2011-04”). ASU 2011-04 amends ASC 820, providing a consistent definition and measurement of fair value, as well as similar disclosure requirements between U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. ASU 2011-04 changes certain fair value measurement principles, clarifies the application of existing fair value measurement and expands the ASC 820 disclosure requirements, particularly for Level 3 fair value measurements. ASU 2011-04 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company’s adoption of ASU 2011-04 is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
