Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
Reference Rate Reform. In March 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued guidance, amended in January 2021, which provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying GAAP to contract modifications and hedging relationships, subject to meeting certain criteria that reference the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) or another reference rate expected to be discontinued. This guidance became effective on March 12, 2020, and will apply through December 31, 2022. The transition from LIBOR based benchmark is expected to begin January 1, 2022 and to be completed when U.S. Dollar (“USD”) LIBOR rates are phased out by June 30, 2023. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the transition from LIBOR on its financial statements and related disclosures and the related impact of this guidance on the transition. The Company adopted appropriate LIBOR replacement rate transition language into the agreements for the renewal of its USD bank conduit facility in 2020 and the renewal of the credit agreement governing the revolving credit facility and term loan B which closed on October 22, 2021. These agreements represented the Company’s largest exposure to LIBOR. The Company intends to include such language in its other relevant agreements prior to the end of 2021. See Note 25—Subsequent Events for additional details.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. In December 2019, the FASB issued guidance to simplify the accounting for income taxes and clarify the financial statement presentation for tax benefits related to tax deductible dividends. This guidance became effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.
