NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
NOTE 1 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Nature of Operations. Capital City Bank Group, Inc. (“CCBG” or the “Company”) provides a full range of banking and banking-related services to individual and corporate clients through its subsidiary, Capital City Bank, with banking offices located in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. The Company is subject to competition from other financial institutions, is subject to regulation by certain government agencies and undergoes periodic examinations by those regulatory authorities.
Basis of Presentation. The consolidated financial statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include the accounts of CCBG and its wholly owned subsidiary, Capital City Bank (“CCB” or the “Bank”). All material inter-company transactions and accounts have been eliminated. Certain previously reported amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year’s presentation.
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.
The consolidated statement of financial condition at December 31, 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 generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.
Leases. Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-02 requires that lessees and lessors recognize lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. ASU 2016-02 was effective for the Company on January 1, 2019. ASU 2016-02 provides for a modified retrospective transition approach requiring lessees to recognize and measure leases on the balance sheet at the beginning of either the earliest period presented or as of the beginning of the period of adoption with the option to elect certain practical expedients. The Company elected to apply the modified retrospective transition approach as of the beginning of the period of adoption and has not restated comparative periods. The Company also adopted the package of practical expedients provided under ASU 2016-02, which provided for the Company not to reassess: (i) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (ii) the lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and (iii) initial and direct costs of any existing leases. The Company elected not to apply the recognition requirements of ASU 2016-02 to any short-term leases (as defined by the accounting guidance).
The Company’s operating leases related primarily to banking office locations. As a result of implementing ASU 2016-02, the Company recognized operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) assets of $2.0 million and operating lease liabilities of $2.8 million on January 1, 2019, with no significant impact on its consolidated statement of income or consolidated statement of cash flows compared to the prior lease accounting model. The difference between the lease assets and the lease liabilities of $0.8 million was prepaid rent, which was reclassified to lease assets. The ROU asset and lease liability are recorded in other assets and other liabilities, respectively, in the consolidated statement of financial condition. See Note 5 – Leases for additional information.
