Accounting for Certain Loans Acquired in a Transfer
In December 2003, under clearance of the FASB, the Accounting Standards Executive Committee (AcSEC) of the AICPA issued Statement of Position (SOP) 03-3, Accounting for Certain Loans or Debt Securities Acquired in a Transfer. This SOP establishes accounting standards for discounts on purchased loans when the discount is attributable to credit quality. The SOP requires that the loan discount, rather than contractual amounts, establish the investors estimate of undiscounted expected future principal and interest cash flows as a benchmark for yield and impairment measurements. The SOP prohibits the carryover or creation of a valuation allowance in the initial accounting for these loans. This SOP is effective for loans acquired in years beginning after December 15, 2004. At adoption, there was no impact on the Companys financial position or results of operations.
