DISCLOSURES REQUIRED BY ASU 2014-09 REVENUE FROM CONTRACTS WITH CUSTOMERS (ASC TOPIC 606) The core principle of Topic 606 is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The objective of the disclosure requirements in Topic 606 is for an entity to disclose sufficient information to enable users of the financial statements to understand the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. The nature and extent of this information differs between public and nonpublic entities (nonprofits are considered to be public entities if they issue public debt or are a conduit debt obligor for debt that is not privately placed). This ASU requires an entity to provide information about the following: • revenue recognized from contracts with customers, including the disaggregation of revenue into appropriate categories; • contract balances, including the opening and closing balances of receivables, contract assets and contract liabilities;

• performance obligations, including when the entity typically satisfies its performance obligations and the transaction price that is allocated to the remaining performance obligations in a contract; and • significant judgments, and changes in judgments, made in applying the requirements to those contracts. Additionally, an entity is required to provide quantitative and/or qualitative information about assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract with a customer.
