Executive Summary

The new leases accounting standard requires lessees to recognize virtually all leases on the balance sheet. Because of this, the way a private equity firm approaches its investments may change. Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02, Leases, requires lessees to record a liability for payment obligations under the lease and a corresponding right of use (ROU) asset for the right to use the leased asset during the lease term.
