This Roadmap provides an overview of the FASB’s authoritative guidance on the issuer’s accounting for debt arrangements (including convertible debt) as well as our insights into and interpretations of how to apply that guidance in practice.
The 2022 edition includes updated and expanded guidance that reflects, among other changes, amendments made by ASU 2020-06 to ASC 260 under which an entity, when calculating diluted earnings per share, may no longer overcome the presumption of share settlement for a contract that may be settled in stock or cash.
For a discussion of the issuer’s accounting for convertible debt before the adoption of ASU 2020-06, see Deloitte’s Roadmap Convertible Debt (Before Adoption of ASU 2020-06).
Also available is the latest edition of On the Radar, a high-level summary of emerging issues and trends related to the accounting and financial reporting topics addressed in the Roadmap.
