|Summary of Significant Accounting Policies||
NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Except for our accounting policies for investments, there have been no changes to our significant accounting policies described in Note 2 to our Annual Report on Form
10-Kfor the year ended December 31, 2021 filed with the SEC on March 4, 2022, that have had a material impact on our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes.
We may make strategic investments in entities that share similar interests in Christian and conservative content. The accounting for these investments depends on the degree to which we influence the investee. The determination of the degree to which we can influence the investee requires extensive analysis depending on the terms and nature of each investment. For material investments that we directly or indirectly hold a controlling financial interest, we apply the guidance within Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 810, Consolidation. For material investments that we do not hold a controlling interest, but for which we have significant influence, we apply the equity method of accounting under ASC
323-30,Investments – Equity Method and Joint Ventures. For investments in which we do not have significant influence, we apply the accounting guidance in ASC 321 – Investments Equity Securities.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Changes to accounting principles are established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) in the form of Accounting Standards Update (“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.
Accounting Standards Adopted in 2022
In November 2021, the FASB issued ASU
. The ASU codifies new requirements to disclose information about the nature of certain government assistance received, the accounting policy used to account for the transactions, the location in the financial statements where such transactions were recorded, and significant terms and conditions associated with such transactions. The guidance was effective for annual periods beginning on January 1, 2022. The adoption of ASU
Disclosures by Business Entities about Government Assistance
No. 2021-10did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations, cash flows, or presentation thereof.
Recent Accounting Standards or Updates Not Yet Effective
In March 2022, the FASB issued ASU
Troubled Debt Restructurings (“TDRs”) and Vintage Disclosures
. This amended guidance will eliminate the accounting designation of a loan modification as a TDR, including eliminating the measurement guidance for TDRs. The amendments also enhance existing disclosure requirements and introduce new requirements related to modifications of receivables made to borrowers experiencing financial difficulty. Additionally, this guidance requires entities to disclose gross write-offs by year of origination for financing receivables, such as loans and interest receivable. The ASU is effective January 1, 2023, and is required to be applied prospectively, except for the recognition and measurement of TDRs which can be applied on a modified retrospective basis. 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.
Financial Instruments – Credit Losses
the FASB issued ASU
Business Combinations (Topic
805): Accounting for Contract
Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers
, which requires an acquirer to recognize and measure contract assets and liabilities acquired in a business combination in accordance with Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic
) rather than adjust them to fair value at the acquisition date. The ASU is effective January 1, 2023, with early adoption permitted. The impact that this pronouncement will have will depend on the nature of business acquisitions that may take place in the future.
