This EITF Snapshot covers the following issues discussed by the EITF at the meeting:

  • Issue 08-1 Revenue Arrangements With Multiple Deliverables – Consensus-for-exposure
  • Issue 08-9 Milestone Method of Revenue Recognition – Tentative conclusion reached
  • Issue 08-6 Equity Method Investment Accounting Considerations – Final consensus
  • Issue 08-7 Accounting for Defensive Intangible Assets – Final consensus
  • Issue 08-8 Accounting for an Instrument (or an Embedded Feature) With a Settlement Amount That Is Based on the Stock of an Entity's Consolidated Subsidiary – Final consensus
  • Issue 08-10 Selected Statement 160 Implementation Questions – Consensus-for-exposure

Initial EITF consensuses (known as 'consensuses-for-exposure') are exposed for a comment period after ratification by the FASB. At its first scheduled meeting after the comment period, the EITF considers comments received and, as warranted, affirms its consensuses-for-exposure as final consensuses. Those consensuses are then provided to the Board for final ratification.
