This week we cover Webinar December, LIBOR Consultation Ends, GAAP Accounting Changes and Trading Review
On November 14th, the LSTA hosted a webinar on “Planning for Changes in GAAP: Credit Agreement Implications” presented by Howard Friedman of PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Ken Steinberg of Davis Polk, and Ramya Tiller of Debevoise. The presenters noted that we are in one of the most active periods (if not the most active period) for accounting changes ever with significant developments in revenue recognition and lease accounting taking place. On January 1, 2019, private companies must comply with the new revenue recognition (ASC 606), something with which public companies had to comply earlier this year.
