SEC announces SAB 109 regarding written loan commitments

The Securities and Exchange Commission's Office of the Chief Accountant and Division of Corporation Finance has announced the release of Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) No. 109, "Written Loan Commitments Recorded at Fair Value Through Earnings." The SAB provides the staff's views on the accounting for written loan commitments recorded at fair value under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

To make the staff's views consistent with current authoritative accounting guidance, the SAB revises and rescinds portions of SAB No. 105, "Application of Accounting Principles to Loan Commitments."

Specifically, the SAB revises the SEC staff's views on incorporating expected net future cash flows related to loan servicing activities in the fair value measurement of a written loan commitment. The SAB retains the staff's views on incorporating expected net future cash flows related to internally-developed intangible assets in the fair value measurement of a written loan commitment.

Statements in SABs are not rules or interpretations of the Commission, nor are they published as bearing the Commission's official approval. The statements represent interpretations and practices followed by the Division of Corporation Finance and the Office of the Chief Accountant in administering the disclosure requirements of federal securities laws.
