This excerpt taken from the HBI 8-K filed Sep 5, 2006.
In December 2004, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123R (SFAS No. 123R), Share-Based Payments, the provisions of which became effective for the Company on July 3, 2005. This Statement eliminates the alternative to use APB No. 25s intrinsic value method of accounting that was provided in SFAS No. 123 as originally issued. SFAS No. 123R requires companies to recognize the cost of employee services received in exchange for awards of equity instruments based on the grant date fair value of those awards. While the fair-value-based method prescribed by SFAS No. 123R is similar to the fair-value-based method disclosed under the provisions of SFAS No. 123 in most respects, there are some differences.
The Company adopted the provisions of SFAS No. 123R at the beginning of 2006, and applied the modified prospective transition method in which compensation cost is recognized for all share-based payments granted after the beginning of 2006, plus awards granted to employees prior to 2006 that remained unvested at that time. The Company did not have a significant number of awards that remained unvested at the beginning of 2006. Under this method of adoption, no restatement of prior periods was made.
SFAS No. 123R did not have a material impact on the Companys results of operating cash flows or financial position upon adoption. However, had SFAS No. 123R been adopted in prior periods, the effect would have approximated the SFAS No. 123 pro forma net income and earnings per share disclosures shown in section (n) of this note to the Combined and Consolidated Financial Statements.
