This excerpt taken from the JNS 8-K filed Jul 14, 2009.
Effective January 1, 2009 JCG adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 160, "Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements, an amendment of Accounting Research Bulletin No. 51" ("SFAS 160") and the amended provisions of Emerging Issues Task Force Topic D-98 "Classification and Measurement of Redeemable Securities" ("EITF D-98"). SFAS 160 establishes accounting and reporting standards for the noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary, and requires noncontrolling interests to be classified as a component of equity in the consolidated financial statements. EITF D-98 clarified that noncontrolling interests that are redeemable and whose redemption is not solely controlled by the issuer are not within the scope of SFAS 160. Such interests are within the scope of EITF D-98, which requires that redeemable noncontrolling interests be classified outside of permanent equity at the aggregate of the redemption value and undistributed earnings attributable to the noncontrolling interest at each balance sheet date. SFAS 160 and EITF D-98 have been retroactively applied to previous periods presented. See Note 21.
