Adoption of Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Debt Issuance Costs
In April 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU No. 2015-03, Interest-Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs (“ASU 2015-03”). The accounting guidance requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be reported on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability. ASU 2015-03 is effective for annual periods and interim periods within those annual periods beginning after December 31, 2015 and early adoption is permitted. The Company elected to early adopt ASU 2015-03 effective December 31, 2015. The Company applied the new guidance on a retrospective basis, wherein the balance sheet of each individual period presented was adjusted to reflect the period-specific effects of applying the new guidance. The reclassification of unamortized debt issuance costs resulted in reductions in other assets and debt of $102.9 as of September 30, 2015. Other than this reclassification, the adoption of this guidance did not have an impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. The balance of unamortized debt issue costs at December 31, 2015 was $100.2.
Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments
In September 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-16, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments. This ASU simplifies the presentation of provisional amounts recognized in a business combination during the measurement period (one year from the date of acquisition). Whereas the prior guidance required retrospective adjustment of prior periods, this ASU eliminates this requirement. The Company adopted ASU 2015-16 effective December 31, 2015, resulting in the recognition of adjustments to goodwill during the three months ended December 31, 2015 related to the acquisition of Armored AutoGroup Parent Inc. See Note 8, Goodwill and Intangibles for adjustments to goodwill.
Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes
In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-17, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (“ASU 2015-17”). ASU 2015-17 requires that the presentation of deferred tax assets and liabilities be classified as noncurrent on the balance sheet instead of separating deferred taxes into current and noncurrent amounts. During the three months ended December 31, 2015, the Company elected to retrospectively adopt ASU 2015-17, resulting in a reclassification reducing both deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities by $39.1 on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at September 30, 2015.
Oil and natural gas properties
Pursuant to Rule 4-10(c)(4) of Regulation S-X, Compass is required to compute its ceiling test using the simple average first day of the month spot price for the trailing twelve month period for oil and natural gas at the end of each fiscal quarter. The ceiling test involves comparing the net book value of the full cost pool, after taxes, to the full cost ceiling limitation defined below. In the event the full cost ceiling limitation is less than the full cost pool, Compass is required to record a ceiling test impairment of its oil and natural gas properties. The full cost ceiling limitation is computed as the sum of the present value of estimated future net revenues from Compass’ proved reserves by applying the average price as prescribed by the SEC Release No. 33-8995, less estimated future expenditures (based on current costs) to develop and produce the proved reserves, discounted at 10%, plus the cost of properties not being amortized and the lower of cost or estimated fair value of unproved properties included in the costs being amortized, net of income tax effects.
The ceiling test is computed using the simple average first day of the month spot price for the trailing twelve month period using the first day of each month. As of December 31, 2015, the trailing 12 month period month reference prices were $2.59 per Million British Thermal Units (“Mmbtu”) for natural gas at Henry Hub (“HH”), and $50.28 per barrel (“Bbl”) of oil for West Texas Intermediate (“WTI”) at Cushing, Oklahoma. Each of the reference prices for oil and natural gas are further adjusted for quality factors and regional differentials to derive estimated future net revenues. The price used for natural gas liquids was $18.27 per Bbl and was based on the trailing 12 month period month average of realized prices. Under full cost accounting rules, any ceiling test impairments of oil and natural gas properties may not be reversed in subsequent periods. Since Compass does not designate its derivative financial instruments as hedging instruments, Compass is not allowed to use the impacts of the derivative financial instruments in the ceiling test computations.
During the three months ended December 31, 2015, Compass recognized impairments of $54.4 to its proved oil and natural gas properties due to the continued decline in oil and natural gas prices.
For the three months ended December 31, 2014, Compass recognized impairments of $190.0 to its proved oil and natural gas properties due to the sharp decline in oil and natural gas prices as well as the acquisition by HGI Energy of EXCO Resources, Inc. (“EXCO”) interest in Compass, which triggered the remeasurement of the Company’s initial basis in Compass at fair value which increased Compass’ full cost pool. The purchase price for the acquisition was based on both the income and market approach models which incorporate, among other things, market prices based on the New York Mercantile Exchange (“NYMEX”) futures
