In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting. The amendment clarifies when changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award must be accounted for as modifications. The new guidance is expected to reduce diversity in practice and result in fewer changes to the terms of an award being accounted for as modifications. Changes that do not impact the award’s fair value, vesting conditions, or classification as an equity or liability instrument will not to be assessed modification accounting. The guidance is effective for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company is evaluating the effect of this standard on its consolidated financial statements.
3. TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN ENTITIES UNDER COMMON CONTROL
Recast of Historical Financial Statements
The Company is required to recast historical financial statements when power plants are acquired from SunEdison. The recast reflects the assets and liabilities and the results of operations of the acquired power plants for the period the power plants were owned by SunEdison, which is in accordance with the rules applicable to transactions between entities under common control. The Company has modified the presentation of its consolidated statements of operations to separate pre-acquisition net loss from power plants acquired from SunEdison from net loss attributable to Class A common stockholders.
On February 24, 2016, the Company acquired two solar power plants in Thailand from SunEdison, NPS Star and WXA, with an aggregate net capacity of 35.6 MW, which resulted in a recast of the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2015, and the related consolidated statement of cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2015. These power plants became operational at the end of 2015, which resulted in a recast of the consolidated statement of operations to separate the pre-acquisition net loss from power plants acquired from SunEdison from net loss attributable to Class A common stockholders.
The following table presents changes to the Company's consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2015, included in the Company's 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K:
