Published on: 03 Apr 2024

This Roadmap provides an overview of the guidance in ASC 480 as well as insights into and interpretations of how to apply it in practice. ASC 480 requires (1) issuers to classify certain types of shares of stock and certain share-settled contracts as liabilities or, in some circumstances, as assets and (2) SEC registrants to classify certain types of redeemable equity instruments as temporary equity.
