Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Changes to accounting principles are established by the FASB in the form of ASUs to the FASB’s Codification. We consider the applicability and impact of all ASUs on our financial position, results of operations, cash flows, or presentation thereof. Described below are ASUs that may be applicable to our financial position, results of operations, cash flows, or presentation thereof. ASUs not listed below were assessed and determined to not be applicable to our financial position, results of operations, cash flows, or presentation thereof.
In January 2021, the FASB issued ASU
Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Scope, which refines the scope of ASC 848,
Reference Rate Reform, and clarifies guidance as part of the FASB’s ongoing monitoring of global reference rate reform activities. The ASU permits entities to elect certain optional expedients and exceptions when accounting for derivative contracts and certain hedging relationships affected by changes in the interest rates used for discounting cash flows, computing variation margin settlements, and calculating price alignment interest in connection with reference rate reform activities under way in global financial markets. The ASU is effective upon issuance and did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations, cash flows, or presentation thereof.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU
Financial Instruments-Credit Losses,which changes the impairment model for most financial assets and certain other instruments. For trade and other receivables,
debt securities, loans and other instruments, entities will be required to use a new forward-looking “expected loss” model that will replace today’s “incurred loss” model and generally will result in the earlier recognition of allowances for losses. For
debt securities with unrealized losses, entities will measure credit losses in a manner similar to current practice, except that the losses will be recognized as an allowance. Subsequent to issuing ASU
2016-13,the FASB issued ASU
Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses, for the purpose of clarifying certain aspects of ASU

2016-13.In May 2019, the FASB issued ASU
Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), which is also effective with the adoption of ASU
2016-13.In October 2019, the FASB voted to delay the implementation date for certain companies, including those, such as Salem, that qualify as a smaller reporting company under SEC rules, until January 1, 2023. We will adopt this ASU on its effective date of January 1, 2023. We do not expect the adoption of this ASU to have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations, cash flows, or presentation thereof.
