Note 7 – New Accounting Pronouncements:

 

In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued an amendment to achieve common fair value measurement and disclosure requirements between U.S. and International accounting principles. Overall, the guidance is consistent with existing U.S. accounting principles; however, there are some amendments that change a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or for disclosing information about fair value measurements. This update became effective for the Company for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position or results of operations.

 

In June 2011, the FASB amended existing guidance and eliminated the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in shareholders’ equity. The amendment requires that comprehensive income be presented in either a single continuous statement or in two separate consecutive statements. This update became effective for the Company for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position or results of operations.
