ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842)
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standard Update ("ASU") No. 2016-02, Leases ("ASU 2016-02") and in July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements ("ASU 2018-11") (collectively referred to as "ASC 842"). This guidance requires the recognition of right-of-use ("ROU") assets and lease liabilities, arising from financing and operating leases, on the consolidated balance sheet, along with additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures. Companies are required to adopt this guidance using a modified retrospective approach and apply the transition provisions under the guidance at either 1) the later of the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements and the commencement date of the lease, or 2) the beginning of the period of adoption (i.e., on the effective date). Under the transition method using the second application date, a company initially applies the new leases standard at the adoption date and recognizes a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption.
The Company adopted the guidance on January 1, 2022, beginning of our calendar year 2022, using the modified retrospective transition method and initially applied the transition provisions at January 1, 2022, which allowed us to continue to apply the legacy guidance in ASC 840 for periods prior to calendar year 2022. We elected the package of transition practical expedients, which among other things, allows us to keep the historical lease classifications and not have to reassess the lease classification for any existing leases as of the date of adoption. We also made the following accounting policy elections as allowed by ASC 842:
•to apply the short-term lease exception, which allows us to keep leases with an initial term of twelve months or less off the statement of financial position.
•to account for each separate lease component of a contract and its associated non-lease components as a single-lease component for all our leases.
As a result of the adoption of this standard, there was no adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings as there was no cumulative effect adjustment at the date of adoption. Accordingly, the primary impact of adopting ASC 842 was the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities for operating leases of approximately $4,120 and $4,120, respectively for all existing leases which had remaining obligations as of January 1, 2022. ASC 842 did not have a material impact on our results of operations and comprehensive income or statement of cash flow.
ASU No. 2021-04, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260)
In May 2021, the FASB issued ASU No. 2021-04, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt—Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options ("ASU No. 2021-04"), which provides a principles-based framework to determine whether an issuer should recognize the modification or exchange as an adjustment to equity or an expense. ASU No. 2021-04 requires issuers to account for modifications or exchanges of freestanding equity-classified written call options (e.g., warrants) that remain equity classified after the modification or exchange based on the economic substance of the modification or exchange. The amendments in ASU No. 2021-04 are effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted for all entities, including adoption in an interim period. The adoption of ASU No.2021-04 did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

ASU No. 2020-06, Debt (Topic 815)
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06, Debt - (Topic 815) ("ASU No. 2020-06"), which simplifies an issuer’s
accounting for convertible instruments and its application of the derivatives scope exception for contracts in its own equity. The
amendments in ASU No. 2020-06 are effective for public companies, other than smaller reporting companies, for fiscal years
beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments
are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early
adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those
fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the effect of adopting ASU No. 2020-06.
ASU No. 2016-13- Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (Topic 326)
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASU 2016-13”). ASU 2016-13 replaces the existing incurred loss impairment model with a forward-looking expected credit loss model which will result in earlier recognition of credit losses for certain financial instruments and financial assets. For trade receivables, we are required to estimate lifetime expected credit losses. For available-for-sale debt securities, the Company will recognize an allowance for credit losses rather than a reduction to the carrying value of the asset. ASU 2016-13 is effective for the Company’s fiscal year beginning January 1, 2023. The Company is currently evaluating the effect of adopting ASU No 2016-13.
