The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all of the information and disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statements.
In management’s opinion, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments, which include normal recurring adjustments, that are necessary for a fair statement of the condensed consolidated financial condition of the Company at March 31, 2019; the condensed consolidated results of operations and comprehensive income of the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018; the condensed consolidated changes in equity of the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018; and the condensed consolidated cash flows of the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019 or any other future period.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
ASU No. 2016-02 – Leases (Topic 842). This standard, as subsequently amended and clarified by various ASUs, requires lessees to recognize assets and liabilities for the rights and obligations created by leases of assets. For income statement purposes, the standard retains a dual model which requires leases to be classified as either operating or finance based on criteria that are largely similar to those applied under prior lease accounting but without explicit bright lines. The standard also requires extensive quantitative and qualitative disclosures, including significant judgments and assumptions made by management in applying the standard, intended to provide greater insight into the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases.
The Company adopted the standard on January 1, 2019 and applied the transition guidance as of the date of adoption under the current-period adjustment method. As a result, the Company recognized right-of-use assets and lease liabilities associated with its leases on January 1, 2019, with a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of accumulated earnings, while the comparable prior periods in the Company’s financial statements continue to be reported in accordance with Topic 840, including the disclosures of Topic 840.
The standard includes a number of optional practical expedients under the transition guidance. The Company elected the package of practical expedients which allowed the Company to not reassess prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification, and initial direct costs. The Company also made accounting policy elections by class of underlying asset to not apply the recognition requirements of the standard to leases with terms of 12 months or less and to not separate non-lease components from lease components. Consequently, each separate lease component and the non-lease components associated with that lease component is accounted for as a single lease component for lease classification, recognition, and measurement purposes.
Upon adoption of the standard on January 1, 2019, the Company recognized a lease liability of $123.2 million and a right-of-use asset of $113.2 million. The difference between the lease liability and right-of-use asset primarily reflects the reclassification of accrued straight-line rent and unamortized tenant allowances from other liabilities in the Company’s statement of financial condition to a reduction of the right-of-use asset. In addition, the Company recognized an impairment loss of $3.4 million in connection with the recognition of right-of-use assets for certain IT’SUGAR retail locations as a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of accumulated earnings. The implementation of the standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s statement of operations and comprehensive income or statement of cash flows. See Note 12 for additional information regarding the Company’s lease agreements.
ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326), Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. This standard introduces an approach of estimating credit losses on certain types of financial instruments based on expected losses and expands the disclosure requirements regarding an entity’s assumptions, models, and methods for estimating its allowance for credit losses. In addition, the standard requires entities to disclose the amortized cost balance for each class of financial asset by credit quality indicator, disaggregated by the year of origination (i.e., by vintage year). This standard will be effective for the Company on January 1, 2020. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that ASU 2016-13 may have on its consolidated financial statements.
ASU No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820), Disclosure Framework – Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. This standard modifies the disclosure requirements in Topic 820 related to the valuation techniques and inputs used in fair value measurements, uncertainty in measurement, and changes in measurements applied. This standard will be effective for the Company on January 1, 2020. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that ASU 2018-13 may have on its consolidated financial statement footnote disclosures.
The entire disclosure for the general note to the financial statements for the reporting entity which may include, descriptions of the basis of presentation, business description, significant accounting policies, consolidations, reclassifications, new pronouncements not yet adopted and changes in accounting principles.
