NOTE 5 RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05: Presentation of Comprehensive Income 2011-05
In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued an update related to presentation of Comprehensive Income. ASU 2011-05 requires entities to report components of comprehensive income in either (1) a continuous statement of comprehensive income or (2) two separate but consecutive statements. Under the two-statement approach, the first statement would include components of net income, and the second statement would include components of other comprehensive income. This ASU does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income. These provisions are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011 and for interim periods within those fiscal years; however, early adoption is permitted. The provisions of ASU 2011-05, when adopted, are not expected to have a material impact on Bullions consolidated financial statements.
Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-04: Fair value measurements update 2011-04
In May 2011, the FASB issued an update to the authoritative guidance related to fair value measurements as a result of the FASB and the IASB working together to develop common requirements for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The amendments will add new disclosures, with a particular focus on Level 3 measurements. The objective of these amendments is to improve the comparability of fair value measurements presented and disclosed in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and IFRS. The amendments in this update are to be applied prospectively. The amendments are effective during interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. Early application is not permitted. Bullion does not expect this guidance to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
