This excerpt taken from the FRGB 10-Q filed May 15, 2009.
FSP FAS No. 115-2 - In April 2009, the FASB issued FSP SFAS No.115-2 and SFAS No. 124-2, Recognition and Presentation of Other-Than-Temporary Impairments, which amends the other-than-temporary impairment (“OTTI”) guidance in the U.S. GAAP for debt securities to make the guidance more operational and to improve the presentation and disclosure of OTTI on debt and equity securities in the financial statements. This FSP does not amend existing recognition and measurement guidance related to OTTI of equity securities. This FSP also requires increased and more timely disclosures sought by investors regarding expected cash flows, credit losses, and an aging of securities with unrealized losses. FSP SFAS No. 115-2 and SFAS No. 124-2 are effective for interim and annual reporting periods ending after June 15, 2009. If a reporting entity elects to adopt early either FSP SFAS No. 157-4 or FSP SFAS No. 107-1 and APB 28-1, the reporting entity also is required to adopt early this FSP. This FSP does not require disclosures for earlier periods presented for comparative purposes at initial adoption. In periods after initial adoption, this FSP requires comparative disclosures only for periods ending after initial adoption. We will adopt FSP SFAS No. 115-2 and SFAS No. 124-2 in the second quarter of 2009 and are in the process of evaluating the impact that the adoption will have on the consolidated financial statements.
