ISDA response to the FASB exposure draft on contingent put and call options in debt instruments
October 7, 2015
On October 5, ISDA’s Accounting Committee responded to a consultation issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) seeking views from all stakeholders on contingent put and call options in debt instruments Topic 815. ISDA welcomes the clarification provided by the exposure draft on the treatment of contingent puts and calls. We believe the clarifications to Topic 815 provided in the exposure draft will alleviate concerns about the treatment of these contingent options and reduce existing diversity in practice.
