While FSP 157-2 amends the effective date of SFAS No. 157 for all non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities, except those recognized or disclosed on a recurring basis (at least annually) until the beginning of the first quarter of 2009. In October 2008, FASB issued FSP No. 157-3, Determining the Fair Value of a Financial Asset When the Market for that Asset is Not Active, which clarifies how to calculate the fair value of financial asset under certain conditions and gives an example of such. SFAS No 159 allows the Company to elect and record at fair value many financial assets and liabilities and certain other items with the change being recorded in earnings. This can be done on an instrument by instrument basis in most circumstances, is irrevocable after elected for that instrument and must be applied to the entire instrument. The adoption of both of these standards did not have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements. See Note 16.
