Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
The significant accounting policies used in preparing these consolidated financial statements are consistent with the accounting policies described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2018, except as described below.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

In August 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities. ASU 2017-12 intends to better align an entity's risk management activities and financial reporting for hedging relationships through changes to both the designation and measurement guidance for qualifying hedging relationships and the presentation of hedge results. The amendments expand and refine hedge accounting for both nonfinancial and financial risk components, and align the recognition and presentation of the effects of the hedging instrument and the hedged item in the financial statements. In addition, this ASU makes certain targeted improvements to simplify the application of hedge accounting guidance. ASU 2017-12 was early adopted for our fiscal year beginning on October 1, 2018 on a prospective basis. The adoption of this standard did not have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows: Restricted Cash. ASU 2016-18 requires that a statement of cash flows explain the change during the period in the total of cash, cash equivalents, and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. Therefore, amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents should be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts shown on the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-18 became effective and was adopted for our fiscal year beginning on October 1, 2018. The adoption of ASU 2016-18 had a financial statement presentation and disclosure impact only.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, Clarifying the Definition of a Business. ASU 2017-01 assists entities in determining whether a transaction involves an asset or a business. Specifically, it states that when substantially all of the fair value of the gross assets acquired (or disposed of) is concentrated in a single identifiable asset or group of similar identifiable assets, the set is not a business. If this initial test is not met, a set cannot be considered a business unless it includes an input and a substantive process that together significantly contribute to the ability to create output.  ASU 2017-01 became effective and was adopted for our fiscal year beginning on October 1, 2018. The adoption of ASU 2017-01 did not have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In March 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-07, Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost. ASU 2017-07 states that an employer must report the service cost component in the same line item or items as other compensation costs arising from services rendered by the pertinent employees during the period and present the other components of net benefit cost (as defined in paragraphs 715-30-35-4 and 715-60-35-9) in the income statement separately from the service cost component and outside a subtotal of income from operations (if one is presented). In addition, ASU 2017-07 limits the capitalization of compensation costs to the service cost component only (if capitalization is appropriate). ASU 2017-07 became effective and was adopted for our fiscal year beginning on October 1, 2018. On the Consolidated Statements of Income, the adoption of this standard resulted in the reclassification of $0.1 credit from Cost of goods sold to Other income (expense), net, for the three months ended March 31, 2018, and $0.2 credit from Cost of goods sold and $0.1 from Operating expenses to Other income (expense), net, for the six months ended March 31, 2018.

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting. ASU 2017-09 clarifies when changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award must be accounted for as modifications (in accordance with Topic 718). The new guidance will provide relief to entities that make non-substantive changes to share-based payment awards. ASU 2017-09 became effective and was adopted for our fiscal year beginning on October 1, 2018. The adoption of ASU 2017-09 did not have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Beginning in 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”), plus a number of related ASUs designed to clarify and interpret ASC 606. The new standard requires entities to recognize revenue in a way that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The new standard supersedes U.S. GAAP guidance on revenue recognition and requires the use of more estimates than the previously effective standards. It also requires significant disclosures sufficient to enable users to understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers, including qualitative and quantitative disclosures about contracts with customers, significant judgments and changes in judgments, and assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract. The new standard became effective for our fiscal year beginning on October 1, 2018 and was adopted on a modified retrospective basis. The Company elected the practical expedient and only evaluated contracts for which substantially all revenue had not been recognized under ASC Topic 605, with the cumulative effect of the new guidance recorded as of the date of initial application.

The primary changes from the adoption of ASC 606 resulted from certain performance obligations that were previously recognized at a point in time that are now recognized over time. The cumulative effect of the changes made to the Consolidated Balance Sheet as of October 1, 2018 for the adoption of ASC 606 was as follows:

The Company has elected the following as a result of adopting the new standard on revenue recognition:

Hillenbrand elected not to adjust the promised amount of consideration for the effects of the time value of money for contracts in which the anticipated period between when Hillenbrand transfers the goods or services to the customer and when the customer pays is equal to one year or less.

Hillenbrand elected to account for shipping and handling activities that occur after the customer has obtained control of a good as fulfillment activities rather than as a promised service.

Taxes assessed by a governmental authority that are both imposed on and concurrent with a specific revenue-producing transaction, and that are collected by the Company from a customer, are excluded from revenue.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards
 
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases. ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize a right of use asset and related lease liability for leases that have terms of more than twelve months. For income statement purposes, the FASB retained a dual model, requiring leases to be classified as either operating or finance, with the classifications based on criteria that are similar to those applied under the current lease guidance, without the explicit bright lines. ASU 2016-02 will be effective for our fiscal year beginning on October 1, 2019. We have developed an implementation plan and we are currently gathering data to further assess the impact that ASU 2016-02 will have on our consolidated financial statements. The adoption is anticipated to have a significant impact on assets and liabilities within our Consolidated Balance Sheets due to the recognition of right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Statements. ASU 2016-13 replaces the current incurred loss impairment model with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to determine credit loss estimates. ASU 2016-13 will be effective for our fiscal year beginning on October 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted for our fiscal year beginning October 1, 2019. We are currently evaluating the impact that ASU 2016-13 will have on our consolidated financial statements.
