The accompanying consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in compliance with Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X and accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("U.S. GAAP") for interim financial information but do not include all of the information and disclosures required for complete financial statements. The consolidated balance sheet at November 30, 2018, has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements. The statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the latest Annual Report on Form 10-K for International Speedway Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiaries (the “Company” or “ISC”). In management’s opinion, the statements include all adjustments which are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature.
Because of the seasonal concentration of racing events, the results of operations for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2018, and 2019, are not indicative of the results to be expected for the year.
On May 22, 2019, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with NASCAR Holdings, Inc. (“NASCAR”) and Nova Merger Sub, Inc. ("Merger Sub"), a wholly owned subsidiary of NASCAR, providing for the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of NASCAR. NASCAR, which sanctions many of the Company’s principal racing events, is wholly owned by certain members of the France Family Group, which also holds shares of ISC’s Class A common stock, par value $.01 par value per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and Class B common stock, par value $.01 par value per share (“Class B Common Stock,” and, collectively with the Class A Common Stock, the “Company Common Stock”) representing over 74.7 percent of the combined voting power of the Company’s outstanding stock. The France Family Group consists of James C. France (the Company’s Chairman of the Board), Lesa France Kennedy (the Company’s Vice Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer) and Brian Z. France (a director of the Company), and members of their respective families and entities controlled by the natural person members of the group.
At the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, holders of Company Common Stock (other than holders who have elected to dissent from the Merger and seek appraisal rights under the Florida Business Corporations Act and holders of the Rollover Shares (as defined below)) will be entitled to receive $45.00 in cash for each share held, without interest (the “Merger Consideration”), subject to applicable withholding taxes. Prior to the Effective Time, the members of the France Family Group (other than Brian Z. France, his children, and certain related entities) (such members of the France Family Group, the “Rollover Shareholders”) will cause to be contributed pursuant to a rollover letter agreement between such shareholders and NASCAR, shares of Company Common Stock (the “Rollover Shares”) to NASCAR or a related entity and, as a result, such Rollover Shareholders will not receive the Merger Consideration. After the closing of the Merger, the Company will be a private company and wholly-owned subsidiary of NASCAR.
The Merger is subject to the approval of the Merger Agreement by (i) the holders of at least a majority of the aggregate voting power of shares of Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock, voting together as a single class, and (ii) the holders of at least a majority of the aggregate voting power of all outstanding shares of Company Common Stock not held by NASCAR and its affiliates, the France Family Group and certain officers and directors of the Company. NASCAR has agreed in the Merger Agreement to cause the Rollover Shareholders to vote all of their shares of Company Common Stock in favor of the Merger. The Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”), based upon the unanimous recommendation of a special committee of the Board, has unanimously approved and adopted the Merger Agreement, the Merger and the other transactions contemplated thereby and recommended to the shareholders of the Company that they approve the Merger Agreement. The Merger is also conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary closing conditions, including, among others, the expiration or termination of any applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1986, as amended.
If the Merger Agreement is terminated under certain specified circumstances, the Company could be required to pay NASCAR a termination fee of $78,000,000 or to reimburse certain expenses of NASCAR up to $15,000,000, and under other specified circumstances, NASCAR could be required to pay the Company a termination fee of $117,000,000. Subject to certain limitations, either party may terminate the Merger Agreement if the Merger has not been consummated by February 22, 2020.
The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby is only a summary and does not purport to be complete. It is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Company’s Report on Form 8-K filed on May 22, 2019.
The Company subsequently set the close of business on September 10, 2019 as the record date for shareholders to receive the Company’s notice of, and vote at, the special meeting of the shareholders regarding the approval of the Merger Agreement. The special meeting of shareholders has been set for October 16, 2019.
The Company’s definitive Schedule 14A and NASCAR’s definitive Schedule 13-E were filed with the SEC on September 16, 2019.
2. New Accounting Pronouncements
On January 5, 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2017-01, Clarifying the Definition of a Business (ASC 805). Under ASC 805, a business is defined as having a set of assets along with 3 elements or activities—inputs, processes, and outputs. However, confusion occurs when a business does not always have outputs. In addition, all the inputs and processes that a seller uses in operating a set are not required if market participants can acquire the set and continue to produce outputs, for example, by integrating the acquired set with their own inputs and processes. As a result, this definition of a business under ASC 805 led some transactions to be accounted for as a business combination (see Note 5). The update has refined the definition of a business. Now, to be considered a business, an acquisition would have to include an input and a substantive process that together significantly contributes to the ability to create outputs. Public business entities should apply the amendments in this update to annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those periods. The amendments in this update were adopted in the first quarter of fiscal 2019.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The main objective of this update is to provide financial statement users with more decision-useful information about the expected credit losses on financial instruments and other commitments to extend credit held by a reporting entity at each reporting date. To achieve this objective, the amendments in this update replace the incurred loss impairment methodology in current GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. For public business entities that are U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filers, the amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other public business entities, the amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this new guidance on its financial position, results of operations, statement of comprehensive income, and cash flows, and will adopt the provisions of this statement in the first quarter of fiscal 2021.
In May 2014, the FASB, in conjunction with the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB"), issued ASU No. 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers" (ASC 606), which supersedes the existing revenue recognition requirements under U.S. GAAP and eliminates industry-specific guidance. The new revenue recognition standard provides a five step analysis of transactions to determine when and how revenue is recognized. The new model requires revenue recognition to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration a company expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. The new guidance includes updated disclosure requirements regarding the qualitative and quantitative information of ISC’s nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers.
During 2016, the FASB issued additional interpretive guidance relating to the standard which covered the topics of principal versus agent considerations and identifying performance obligations and licensing. The standard, along with the subsequent clarifications issued, are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim reporting periods, making it effective for our fiscal year beginning December 1, 2018. The guidance permits two methods of adoption: the full retrospective method, which applies to each prior reporting period presented, and the modified retrospective method, in which the cumulative effect of initially applying the new guidance is recognized as of the date of initial application as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings. The Company has adopted ASC 606 and the related modifications as of December 1, 2018 using the
modified retrospective transition and the impact of adopting this new guidance did not result in a material difference in its consolidated financial statements (see Note 3).
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842): Leases". The objective of this update is to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. To meet that objective, the FASB is amending the FASB Accounting Standards Codification and creating Topic 842, Leases. This update, along with International Financial Reporting Standards 16, Leases, are the result of the FASB’s and the IASB’s efforts to meet that objective and improve financial reporting. For a public business entity, the amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption of the amendments in this update is permitted for all entities. In transition, lessees and lessors are required to recognize and measure leases at the beginning of the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this new guidance on its financial position, results of operations, and cash flows, and will adopt the provisions of this statement in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.
In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, "Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments". The objective of this update is to provide specific guidance on eight cash flow classification issues and reduce the existing diversity in practice. The amendments in this update are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The amendments in this update should be applied using a retrospective transition method to each period presented. If it is impracticable to apply the amendments retrospectively for some of the issues, the amendments for those issues would be applied prospectively as of the earliest date practicable. The Company adopted the provisions of this statement in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and the impact of adopting this new guidance did not result in a material difference in its consolidated statement of cash flows.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, "Intangibles—Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment". The objective of this update is to simplify the subsequent measurement of goodwill, eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test, which test is measuring goodwill impairment loss by comparing the implied fair value of a reporting unit's goodwill to the carrying amount of that goodwill. Instead, under the amendments in this update, an entity should perform its annual, or interim, goodwill impairment test by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount. An entity should recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value; however, the loss recognized should not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. Additionally, an entity should consider income tax effects from any tax deductible goodwill on the carrying amount of the reporting unit when measuring the goodwill impairment loss, if applicable. An entity should apply the amendments in this update on a prospective basis. An entity is required to disclose the nature of and reason for the change in accounting principle upon transition. That disclosure should be provided in the first annual period and in the interim period within the first annual period when the entity initially adopts the amendments in this update. A public business entity that is an SEC filer should adopt the amendments in this update for its annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this new guidance on its financial position, results of operations, and cash flows, and will adopt the provisions of this statement in the first quarter of fiscal 2021.
In December 2017, the Securities and Exchange Commission issued Staff Accounting Bulletin ("SAB") No. 118 (as further clarified by FASB ASU 2018-05, "Income Taxes (Topic 740): Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118)" to provide guidance for companies that may not have completed their accounting for the income tax effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (Tax Act) in the period of enactment, which is the period that includes December 22, 2017. SAB No. 118 provides for a provisional one year measurement period for entities to finalize their accounting for certain income tax effects related to the Tax Act. SAB No. 118 provides guidance where: (i) the accounting for the income tax effect of the Tax Act is complete and reported in the Tax Act's enactment period, (ii) the accounting for the income tax effect of the Tax Act is incomplete and reported as provisional amounts based on reasonable estimates (to the extent determinable) subject to adjustments during a limited measurement period until complete, and (iii) accounting for the income tax effect of the Tax Act is not reasonably estimable (no related provisional amounts are reported in the enactment period) and entities would continue to apply accounting based on tax law provisions in effect prior to the Tax Act enactment until provisional amounts are reasonably estimable. SAB No. 118 requires disclosure of the reasons for incomplete accounting additional information or analysis needed, among other relevant information. The Company finalized its provisional amounts in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 (see Note 12 - Income Taxes).
In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-02, "Income Statement - Reporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income". The amendments in this update allow a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income to retained earnings for stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Act. Consequently, the amendments eliminate the stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Act and will improve
the usefulness of information reported to financial statement users. However, because the amendments only relate to the reclassification of the income tax effects of the Tax Act, the underlying guidance that requires that the effect of a change in tax laws or rates be included in income from continuing operations is not affected. The amendments in this update also require certain disclosures about stranded tax effects. The amendments in this update are effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption of the amendments in this update is permitted, including adoption in any interim period: (1) for public business entities for reporting periods for which financial statements have not yet been issued and (2) for all other entities for reporting periods for which financial statements have not yet been made available for issuance. The amendments in this update should be applied either in the period of adoption or retrospectively to each period (or periods) in which the effect of the change in the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate in the Tax Act is recognized. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this new guidance on its financial position, results of operations, statement of comprehensive income, and cash flows, and will adopt the provisions of this statement in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.
3. Revenues with Customers
The Company has applied the provisions of ASC 606 and all related appropriate guidance based on the modified retrospective method, which was applied only to the contracts which were not completed as of the date of initial application. As per the new guidance, the Company recognizes revenue under the core principle to depict the transfer of control to its customers in an amount reflecting the consideration to which it expects to be entitled. In order to achieve that core principle, the Company has applied the following five-step approach: (1) identify the contract with a customer, (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (3) determine the transaction price, (4) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and (5) recognize revenue when a performance obligation is satisfied.
The Company’s contracts with customers provide for multiple promised goods and services, including admissions, food, beverage and merchandise, corporate partnerships, television broadcast and radio programming content. The Company typically analyzes the contract and identifies the performance obligations by evaluating whether the promised goods and services are capable of being distinct within the context of the contract at contract inception. Promised goods and services that are not distinct at contract inception are combined. The next step after identifying the performance obligations is determining the transaction price, which includes the impact of variable consideration, based on contractually fixed amounts and an estimation of variable consideration. The Company allocates the transaction price to each performance obligation based on relative stand-alone selling price. Judgment is exercised to determine the stand-alone selling price of each distinct performance obligation. The Company estimates the standalone selling price by reference to the total transaction price less the sum of the observable stand-alone selling prices of other goods or services promised in the contract. In general, transaction price is determined by estimating the fixed amount of consideration to which we are entitled for transfer of goods and services and all relevant sources and components of variable consideration. Variable consideration is estimated by the Company based on the expected value approach. The Company will then estimate variable consideration for a particular type of performance obligation, such method is consistently applied. The Company will constrain estimates of variable consideration based on its expectation of recovery from the customer. Revenues are generally recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to their customers either at a point in time or over time, in an amount that reflects the consideration it expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services.
Most of the Company’s contracts have one performance obligation, the promotion of a unique motorsport event, and all consideration is allocated to that performance obligation and recognized at a point in time contemporaneous with the date of the event.
For advertising, revenue is recognized when the advertisement is broadcasted and the customer simultaneously receives and consumes benefits as the advertisements are broadcasted.
The Company may enter into multiple contracts with a single counter party at or near the same time. The Company will combine contracts and account for them as a single contract when one or more of the following criteria are met: (i) the contracts are negotiated as a package with a single commercial objective, (ii) consideration to be paid in one contract depends on the price or performance of the other contract, and (iii) goods or services promised are a single performance obligation.
Under ASC 606, the transaction price of a non-monetary exchange that has commercial substance is based on the fair value of the non-cash consideration received.
Under ASC 606, consideration payable to a customer includes cash amounts that an entity pays, or expects to pay, to the customer. Consideration payable to a customer also includes credit or other items that can be applied against amounts owed to the entity. The Company accounts for consideration payable to a customer as a reduction of the transaction price and,
therefore, of revenue unless the payment to the customer is in exchange for a distinct good or service that the customer transfers to the entity.
The Company may have contracts where there is a significant timing difference between payment and the time when control of the goods or services is transferred to the customer. The Company has adopted the practical expedient and does not adjust for the promised amount of consideration for the effects of a significant financing component if it expects, at contract inception, that the period between when the entity transfers a promised good or service to a customer and when the customer pays for that good or service will be one year or less.
Nature of Goods and Services
The following is a description of principal activities from which the Company generates its revenue:
The Company’s business consists principally of promoting racing events at its major motorsports entertainment facilities. The Company derives revenues primarily from (i) admissions to motorsports events and motorsports themed amusement activities held at our facilities, (ii) revenue generated in conjunction with or as a result of motorsports events and motorsports themed amusement activities conducted at our facilities, and (iii) catering, concession and merchandising services during or as a result of these events and amusement activities.
“Admissions” revenue includes ticket sales for all of our racing events and other motorsports activities and amusements, net of any applicable taxes. Advance ticket sales and event-related revenues for future events are deferred until earned, which is generally once the events are conducted.
“Motorsports and other event related” revenue primarily includes television and ancillary media rights fees, promotion and sponsorship fees, royalties from licenses of our trademarks, fees paid by third party promoters for management of non-motorsport events, hospitality rentals (including luxury suites, chalets and the hospitality portion of club seating), advertising revenues, parking and camping revenues, track rental fees, syndication of numerous racing events, and programs through our own radio network, MRN.
“Food, beverage and merchandise” revenue includes revenues from concession stands, direct sales of souvenirs, hospitality catering, programs and other merchandise, and fees paid by third party vendors for the right to occupy space to sell souvenirs and concessions at our motorsports entertainment facilities.
The delivery of MRN services is recognized utilizing the output method and the measure of progress is when the advertisements are aired over the MRN network.
The delivery of all other event related services mentioned above are not considered as a separate performance obligation because our customers cannot receive the relevant benefits unless we also fulfill our obligation to deliver the event. Event related revenue is recognized on an event by event basis based on the fees allocated to the performance obligation within the underlying contractual arrangement.
Other revenue primarily includes revenues derived from leasing commercial space in our office and retail operations, including those at ONE DAYTONA and the Shoppes at ONE DAYTONA.
In the following table, revenue is disaggregated by product line and timing of transfer of products and services. The table is in line with our reportable segments (see Note 15 - Segment Reporting).

Corporate Sales and Other Event Related
Food, Beverage and Merchandise
The Company’s rights to consideration for work completed, but not billed at the reporting date, is classified as a receivable, as it has an unconditional right to payment or only conditional for the passage of time. The Company has no recorded contract assets as of August 31, 2019.
Consideration received in advance from customers is recorded as a contract liability, if a contract exists under ASC 606, until services are delivered or obligations are met and revenue is earned. Contract liability represents the excess of amounts invoiced over amounts recognized as revenues. Contract liabilities to be recognized in the succeeding twelve-month period are classified as current contract liabilities and the remaining amounts, if any, are classified as non-current contract liabilities. Contract liabilities are predominately related to motorsports and other event related revenues, and to a lesser extent, Admissions and Food, Beverage and Merchandise revenues. Contract liabilities of approximately $70.4 million and $6.9 million are included in current and long-term deferred revenues, respectively, on the Consolidated Balance Sheets as of August 31, 2019. For the period ended August 31, 2019, we recognized revenue associated with contract liabilities of approximately $38.8 million that were included in the contract liabilities balance at the beginning of the period.
Significant changes in the contract liabilities balances during the period are discussed below.
Transaction price allocated to the remaining performance obligations
The Company applies the optional exemptions and does not disclose: a) information about remaining performance obligations that have an original expected duration of one year or less or b) transaction price allocated to unsatisfied performance obligations for which variable consideration is allocated entirely to a wholly unsatisfied performance obligation or to a wholly unsatisfied promise to transfer a distinct good or service that forms part of a single performance obligation in accordance with the series guidance.
The typical duration of all event related and other contracts is one year or less and, as a result, the Company applies the optional exemptions and does not disclose information about remaining performance obligations that have an original expected duration of one year or less.
The Company has also elected to not disclose transaction price allocated to unsatisfied performance obligations for which variable consideration is allocated entirely to a wholly unsatisfied performance obligation or to a wholly unsatisfied promise to transfer a distinct good or service for event related promises for those contracts that contain percentage of the sales. The fees are variable for this type of contract, and the uncertainty related to the final fee, is resolved within the current year.
Changes in Accounting Policies
The Company adopted ASC 606 with an initial application as of the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, using the Modified Retrospective transition method, and applied ASC 606 to contracts with customers that were not completed as of the date of initial application. Comparative information has not been adjusted as the application of ASC 606 resulted in similar reportable
activity as under ASC 605, "Revenue Recognition - Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements", except for that disclosed below.
Unbilled Income and Deferred Income Recognition for Sponsorship Agreements
The Company previously recognized a receivable for unbilled revenue and a liability in deferred income for an amount equal to the remaining performance obligation at any reporting period. Under ASC 606, the Company will recognize a receivable and a contract liability prior to performance by either party, only if the entity has an unconditional right to payment. The Company has determined it does not have an unconditional right to receive unbilled revenue for remaining performance obligations. Accordingly, the Company will net the amount of unbilled revenue and associated deferred income at any reporting date.

Basic earnings per share is calculated using the Company's weighted-average outstanding common shares. Diluted earnings per share is calculated using the Company's weighted-average outstanding common shares including the dilutive effect of stock awards as determined under the treasury stock method. In periods when the Company recognizes a net loss, it excludes the impact of outstanding stock awards from the diluted loss per share calculation as their inclusion would have an anti-dilutive effect.

A Community Development District ("CDD") has been established for the purpose of installing and maintaining public infrastructure at ONE DAYTONA (see "Future Liquidity - ONE DAYTONA"). The CDD is a local, special purpose government framework authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes for managing and financing infrastructure to support community development. The CDD has negotiated agreements with the City of Daytona Beach and Volusia County for a total of up to $40.0 million in incentives to finance a portion of the infrastructure required for the ONE DAYTONA project. In October 2018, the CDD purchased certain infrastructure assets and specific easement rights from ONE DAYTONA. In October 2018, ONE DAYTONA received approximately $20.0 million of the total incentive amount in cash, with $10.5 million to be
received in annual payments derived from a long-term note receivable issued by the CDD. The first payment of the note receivable was received in fiscal 2019 with maturity no later than fiscal 2046. As of, and for the three and nine months ended, August 31, 2019, approximately $0.2 million of payments have been received. The remainder of the incentives can be received based on certain criteria met by the project through fiscal 2046.

8. Financial Instruments
In accordance with the “Financial Instruments” Topic, ASC 825-10, and in accordance with the “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” Topic, ASC 820-10, additional clarification and disclosure is required about the use of fair value measurements. These topics discuss key considerations in determining fair value in such markets and expanding disclosures on recurring fair value measurements, using unobservable inputs (Level 3).
Various inputs are considered when determining the carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities. These items approximate fair value due to the short-term maturities of these assets and liabilities. The Company's note receivable is a variable-based financial instrument and, therefore, its carrying value approximates its fair value. The Company’s credit facilities approximate fair value as they bear interest rates that approximate market. Fair values of long-term debt are based on quoted market prices at the date of measurement and determined by quotes from financial institutions. There have been no changes or transfers between category levels or classes.
These inputs are summarized in the three broad levels and two classes listed below:
Level 1 — observable market inputs that are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets
Level 2 — other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, credit risk, etc.)
Level 3 — significant unobservable inputs (including the Company’s own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments)
Recurring (R) - measured at fair value on recurring basis, subsequent to initial recognition.
Non-recurring (NR) - measured at fair value on nonrecurring basis, subsequent to initial recognition.
