Determining the Amortization Period for Leasehold Improvements (EITF 05-6), which requires that leasehold improvements acquired in a business combination or purchased significantly after, and not contemplated at the inception of the lease, be amortized over the lesser of the useful life of the asset or a term that includes lease renewals that are reasonably assured.
