Recent SEC disclosures stress balance sheet impact of new lease accounting standards

Preliminary SAB 74 disclosures reveal materiality of ASC 842 changes

RESTON, Va., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LeaseAccelerator, the pioneer of the Enterprise Lease Accounting software category, announced today the release of the first SAB 74 Disclosure Analysis for Lease Accounting report, an assessment of recent SEC filings related to the adoption of ASC 842. The report includes comments issued by the 100 US companies with the largest dollar value of leasing obligations. Key findings include:

  • Material Impacts to Balance Sheets – 76% of the Top 100 reported that there will be a material impact resulting from the transfer of most right-of-use assets and liabilities on to corporate balance sheets. Another 20% are still analyzing the potential impacts of the new standard. Only 8% provided quantitative estimates of the material impact to the balance sheet, which ranged from $1.2 billion to $13 billion.
  • Impacts to Income Statement – 28% of the Top 100 reported that there will not be a material impact to their income statement from ASC 842. Another 66% are still analyzing the impacts.
  • New Policies and Controls - 18% are evaluating or implementing new policies and controls to support the standard.
  • Lease Accounting Software - 18% are evaluating or have selected a lease accounting software application.
  • Project Teams - Only 13% indicated that a project team had been formed to address the new standard.

New Lease Accounting Standards (ASC 842 and IFRS 16)

"As expected, the SAB 74 disclosures confirm that most companies are expecting a material impact to their balance sheets when they adopt ASC 842 and IFRS 16," said Michael Keeler, CEO of LeaseAccelerator. "However, the lack of implementation progress suggests there is still a long road to compliance for many large lessees, each of which will need to implement new Enterprise Lease Accounting systems, policies and controls."

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
