Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of income and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. In the event estimates and/or assumptions prove to be different from actual amounts, adjustments are made in subsequent periods to reflect more current information.
Cash, Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash
The following table provides a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash reported within the condensed consolidated balance sheets that sum to the total of the same such amounts shown in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows (in thousands):
Treasury stock purchases are accounted for under the cost method whereby the entire cost of the acquired stock is recorded as treasury stock and reported as a separate line item on our condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Certain financial information on the condensed consolidated statements of income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 have been revised to conform to the current year presentation. These revisions include (i) a reclassification of $13.1 million and $25.6 million of produced water royalties revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, previously included in easements and other surface-related income to a separate financial statement line item within revenues and (ii) a reclassification of $2.7 million of land sales expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 previously included in land sales to a separate financial statement line item within operating expenses. Land sales expenses include cost basis and closing costs associated with land sales.
Recently Adopted Accounting Guidance
In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2019-12, “Income Taxes (Topic 740) — Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes.” The ASU simplifies the accounting for income taxes by eliminating certain exceptions related to the approach for intraperiod tax allocation, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period, hybrid taxes and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. It also clarifies and simplifies other aspects of the accounting for income taxes. The Company adopted the guidance effective January 1, 2021. The adoption had minimal impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and disclosures.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In July 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-05, “Leases (Topic 842) Lessors – Certain Leases with Variable Lease Payments.” Under the ASU, a lessor would classify a lease with variable lease payments that do not depend on an index or rate as an operating lease at lease commencement if the lease would have been classified as a sales-type lease or direct financing lease under ASC 842 classification criteria and the lessor would have otherwise recognized a day one loss. The ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The ASU is anticipated to have minimal to no impact on our consolidated financial statements and disclosures upon adoption.
