Stock Based Compensation
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share Based Payment Accounting. Several aspects of the accounting for share based payment awards are simplified with this update, including accounting for and classification of various taxes, classification of awards as equity or liabilities, classification of various amounts on the statement of cash flows, and accounting for forfeitures. This standard became effective for the Company on January 1, 2017.
As part of this standard, companies can choose whether to recognize forfeitures as they occur or continue to estimate forfeitures with periodic true-ups. The Company has elected to recognize forfeitures as they occur. This election was made on a modified retrospective basis with the cumulative effect recognized in beginning retained earnings of the current period; therefore, amounts in prior periods have not been restated. The total adjustment was $171,315 as a reduction of APIC and increase in retained earnings.
