The Company adopted the guidance as of January 1, 2019, using the transition method that allows the Company to initially apply Topic 842 as of January 1, 2019 and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of accumulated deficit in the period of adoption. The Company does not expect to recognize a material adjustment to accumulated deficit upon adoption.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework —Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. This ASU removes some disclosure requirements, modifies others, and adds some new disclosure requirements. The guidance is effective January 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect of the new guidance on its consolidated financial statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-15, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40) Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract. This ASU amends the definition of a hosting arrangement and requires a customer in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract to follow the internal use software guidance in ASC 350-402 to determine which implementation costs to capitalize as assets. Capitalized implementation costs are amortized over the term of the hosting arrangement, beginning when the module or component of the hosting arrangement is ready for its intended use. The guidance is effective January 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect of the new guidance on its consolidated financial statements.
    
In October 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-16, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Inclusion of the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) Overnight Index Swap (“OIS”) Rate as a Benchmark Interest Rate for Hedge Accounting Purposes. This ASU expands the list of U.S. benchmark interest rates permitted in the application of hedge accounting by adding the SOFR as a permissible U.S. benchmark rate. The new amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect of the new guidance on its consolidated financial statements for any future application of hedge accounting involving SOFR as a benchmark interest rate.

In October 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-17, Consolidation (Topic 810): Targeted Improvements to Related Party Guidance for Variable Interest Entities. The amendments in this ASU require reporting entities to consider indirect interests held through related parties under common control for determining whether fees paid to decision makers and service provider are variable interests. These indirect interests should be considered on a proportional basis rather than as the equivalent of a direct interest in its entirety (as currently required in U.S. GAAP). The guidance is effective January 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted. Entities are required to apply the amendments in this guidance retrospectively with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings at the beginning of the earliest period presented. The Company is currently evaluating the effect of the new guidance on its consolidated financial statements.
