Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]
Organization and Basis of PreparationOrganization and Basis of Preparation Nature of Operations. Evolution Petroleum Corporation (the "Company," "EPM," "Evolution," "we," "our," or "us") is an oil and gas company focused on delivering a sustainable dividend yield to its stockholders through the ownership, management and development of oil and gas properties. The Company's long-term goal is to build a diversified portfolio of oil and gas assets primarily through acquisition, while seeking opportunities to maintain and increase production through selective development, production enhancement and other exploitation efforts on its properties. Our largest active investment is our interest in a CO 2 enhanced oil recovery project in Louisiana's Delhi field. Interim Financial Statements. The accompanying unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the appropriate rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. All adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and results of operations for the interim periods presented have been included. The interim financial information and notes hereto should be read in conjunction with the Company’s 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 , as filed with the SEC. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for a full fiscal year. Principles of Consolidation and Reporting. Our consolidated financial statements include the accounts of EPM and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (the "Company"). All significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The consolidated financial statements for the previous year may include certain reclassifications to conform to the current presentation. Any such reclassifications have no impact on previously reported net income or stockholders' equity. Use of Estimates. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Significant estimates include (a) reserve quantities and estimated future cash flows associated with proved reserves, which may significantly impact depletion expense and potential impairments of oil and natural gas properties, (b) asset retirement obligations, (c) stock-based compensation, (d) fair values of derivative assets and liabilities, (e) income taxes and the valuation of deferred tax assets and (f) commitments and contingencies. We analyze our estimates based on historical experience and various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable. While we believe that our estimates and assumptions used in preparation of the consolidated financial statements are appropriate, actual results could differ from those estimates.

Accounting Policies [Abstract]
Summary of Significant Accounting PoliciesSummary of Significant Accounting Policies Revenue Recognition Effective July 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue From Contracts With Customers (Topic 606) (“ASC 606”) using the full retrospective method and has applied the standard to all existing contracts. ASC 606 supersedes previous revenue recognition requirements in ASC 605 - Revenue Recognition (“ASC 605”) and includes a five-step revenue recognition model to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration in exchange for those goods or services. As a result of adopting ASC 606, the Company did not have a cumulative-effect adjustment in retained earnings. The comparative information presented therein for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2018 reflects the reclassification on our consolidated statement of operations of $98,411 and $375,006 , respectively, from “Production Costs” to “Revenue - Natural Gas Liquids” in conformance with ASC 606. These changes to revenue and production costs resulted from the conclusion that the Company did not control the product throughout processing before transferring to the customer. Therefore, costs incurred after the transfer of control are treated as reductions of revenue. Additionally, adoption of ASC 606 did not impact net income attributable to common stockholders, current assets, total assets, current liabilities, total liabilities or stockholders’ equity and the Company does not expect that it will do so in future periods. Our revenues are comprised solely of revenues from customers from the sale of crude oil, NGLs and natural gas. The Company believes that the disaggregation of revenue on its consolidated statements of operations into these three major product types appropriately depicts how the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors based on our single geographic location. Crude oil and NGL revenues are recognized at a point in time when production is sold to a purchaser at an index-based, determinable price, delivery has occurred, control has transferred and collectibility of the revenue is probable. The transaction price used to recognize revenue is a function of the contract billing terms which reference index price sources used by the industry. Revenue is invoiced by calendar month based on volumes at contractually based rates with payment typically required within 30 days for crude oil and 60 days for NGLs after the end of the production month. At the end of each month when the performance obligations have been satisfied, the consideration can be reasonably estimated and amounts due from customers are accrued in “Receivables” in our consolidated balance sheets. As of March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018, receivables from contracts with customers were $3.7 million and $3.9 million , respectively. Other Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments - Overall: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities ("ASU 2016-01"). The pronouncement requires equity investments (except those accounted for under the equity method of accounting, or those that result in consolidation of the investees) to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income, requires public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes, requires separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial asset, and eliminates the requirement for public business entities to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost. Effective July 1, 2018, the Company prospectively adopted ASU 2016-01 without impact to its consolidated financial position or results of operations. Because its investment in Well Lift Inc. does not have a readily determinable fair value, the Company elected to measure this investment at cost less impairment, if any, plus or minus changes resulting from observable price changes in orderly transactions for the identical or a similar investment of the same issuer, if they were to occur. Effective July 1, 2018, the Company retrospectively adopted ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which is intended to reduce diversity in practice in how certain transactions are classified in the statement of cash flows. The guidance addresses eight specific cash flow issues for which current GAAP is either unclear or does not include specific guidance. Adoption had no effect on our current period and comparative consolidated statements of cash flows. Effective July 1, 2018, the Company prospectively adopted ASU No. 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business, which clarifies the definition of a business to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The Company will apply the clarified definition of business to future acquistions and divestitures. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASU 2016-02”), which relates to the accounting for leasing transactions. This standard requires a lessee to record on the balance sheet the assets and liabilities for the rights and obligations created by leases with lease terms of more than twelve months. In addition, this standard requires both lessees and lessors to disclose certain key information about lease transactions. This standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We are evaluating the impact the adoption of ASU 2016-02 will have on our consolidated financial statements and we do not expect the standard to have a material impact.

Equity [Abstract]
Stockholders' EquityStockholders’ Equity Common Stock As of March 31, 2019 , we had 33,186,665 sh ares of common stock outstanding. The Company began paying quarterly cash dividends on common stock in December 2013. We paid dividends of $9,953,562 and $8,286,486 to our common stockholders during the nine months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The following table reflects the dividends paid within the respective three month periods: Fiscal Year 2019 2018 First quarter ended September 30, $ 0.10 $ 0.075 Second quarter ended December 31, $ 0.10 $ 0.075 Third quarter ended March 31, $ 0.10 $ 0.100 In May 2015, the Board of Directors approved a share repurchase program covering up to $5 million of the Company's common stock. Between June 2015 and December 2015, the Company spent $1,609,008 to repurchase 265,762 common shares at an average price of $6.05 per share. There have been no shares repurchased in the open market since December 2015. Under the program's terms, shares are repurchased only on the open market and in accordance with the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Such shares are initially recorded as treasury stock, then subsequently canceled. The timing and amount of repurchases depends upon several factors, including financial resources and market and business conditions. There is no fixed termination date for this repurchase program, and it may be suspended or discontinued at any time. During the nine months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 , the Company acquired treasury stock from holders of newly vested stock-based awards to fund the recipients' payroll tax withholding obligations. The treasury shares were subsequently canceled. Such shares were valued at fair market value on the date of vesting, as reflected in the following table: Nine Months Ended 2019 2018 Number of treasury shares acquired 15,489 55,018 Average cost per share $ 8.95 $ 7.19 Total cost of treasury shares acquired $ 138,638 $ 395,550 Expected Tax Treatment of Dividends For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, all common stock dividends were treated for tax purposes as qualified dividend income to recipients. Based on our current projections for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019, we expect all common dividends for such period to be treated as qualified dividend income. Such projections are based on our reasonable expectations as of March 31, 2019 and are subject to change based on our final tax calculations at the end of the fiscal year.

Disclosure of Compensation Related Costs, Share-based Payments [Abstract]
Stock-Based Incentive PlanStock-Based Incentive Plan At the December 8, 2016 annual meeting, the stockholders approved the adoption of the Evolution Petroleum Corporation 2016 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2016 Plan”), which replaced the Evolution Petroleum Corporation Amended and Restated 2004 Stock Plan (the "2004 Plan") for which there were no shares available for future grants. The 2016 Plan authorizes the issuance of 1,100,000 shares of common stock prior to its expiration on December 8, 2026. Incentives under the 2016 Plan may be granted to employees, directors and consultants of the Company in any one or a combination of the following forms: incentive stock options and non-statutory stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards and restricted stock unit awards, performance share awards, performance cash awards, and other forms of incentives valued in whole or in part by reference to, or otherwise based on, our common stock, including its appreciation in value. As of March 31, 2019 , 852,111 shares remained available for grant under the 2016 Plan. All outstanding awards granted under the 2004 Plan continue to be subject to the terms and conditions as set forth in the agreements evidencing such awards and the terms of the 2004 Plan. Under these agreements, we have outstanding grants of restricted common stock awards ("Restricted Stock") and contingent restricted common stock awards ("Contingent Restricted Stock") to employees and directors of the Company. Restricted Stock and Contingent Restricted Stock The Company has awarded grants of both Restricted Stock and Contingent Restricted Stock as part of its long-term incentive plan. Such grants, which expire after a maximum of four years if unvested, contain service-based, performance-based and market-based vesting provisions. The common shares underlying the Restricted Stock grants are issued on the date of grant. Contingent Restricted Stock grants vest only upon the attainment of higher performance-based or market-based vesting thresholds and are issued only upon vesting. Shares underlying Contingent Restricted Stock awards are reserved from the Plan they were granted under. Service-based awards vest with continuous employment by the Company, generally in annual installments over their terms of three to four years. Certain awards may contain other vesting periods, including quarterly installments and one -year vesting. Restricted Stock grants which vest based on service are valued at the fair market value on the date of grant and amortized over the service period. During the nine months ended March 31, 2019 , we granted 31,777 service-based and 43,990 market-based Restricted Stock awards to our employees as well as 35,215 service-based awards to the Company's directors. We did not grant any performance-based awards, nor any Contingent Restricted Stock awards, during this period. The employees' service-based awards vest annually over a three -year period and the directors' service-based awards have a one -year cliff vesting period. Performance-based grants vest upon the attainment of earnings, revenue and other operational goals and require that the recipient remain an employee or director of the Company through the vesting date. The Company recognizes compensation expense for performance-based awards ratably over the expected vesting period based on the grant date fair value when it is deemed probable, for accounting purposes, that the performance criteria will be achieved. The expected vesting period may be deemed to be shorter than the term of the award. As of March 31, 2019 , there were no performance-based awards outstanding. Market-based awards vest if their respective two - or three -year trailing total returns on the Company’s common stock exceed the corresponding total returns of various quartiles of indices consisting of either peer companies or a broad market index of companies in our industry. More recent market-based awards vest if the average of the Company's closing stock prices over defined quarterly measurement periods together with accumulated paid dividends exceeds a defined value. The fair values and expected vesting periods of these awards are determined using a Monte Carlo simulation based on the historical volatility of the Company's total return compared to the historical volatilities of the other companies in the index. Compensation expense for market-based awards is recognized over the expected vesting period using the straight-line method, so long as the holder remains an employee or director of the Company. Total compensation expense is based on the fair value of the awards at the date of grant and is independent of vesting or expiration of the awards, except for termination of service. For market-based awards granted during the nine months ended March 31, 2019 , the range of assumptions used in the Monte Carlo simulation valuations, expected lives and fair values were as follows: Nine Months Ended 2019 Risk-free interest rate 2.69 % Expected life in years 2.82 Expected volatility 41.8 % Dividend yield 4.0 % Unvested Restricted Stock awards at March 31, 2019 consisted of the following: Number of Weighted Service-based awards 121,265 $ 8.62 Market-based awards 64,302 7.35 Unvested Restricted Stock at March 31, 2019 185,567 $ 8.18 The following table sets forth the Restricted Stock transactions for the nine months ended March 31, 2019 : Number of Weighted Unamortized Compensation Expense at March 31, 2019 Weighted Average Remaining Amortization Period (Years) Unvested at July 1, 2018 199,477 $ 6.83 Service-based shares granted 66,992 9.17 Market-based shares granted 43,990 8.24 Vested (124,892 ) 6.57 Unvested Restricted Stock at March 31, 2019 185,567 $ 8.18 $ 1,055,246 1.86 Unvested Contingent Restricted Stock awards at March 31, 2019 consisted of the following: Number of Weighted Market-based awards 10,156 $ 3.42 The following table sets forth Contingent Restricted Stock transactions for the nine months ended March 31, 2019 : Number of Weighted Unamortized Compensation Expense at March 31, 2019 Weighted Average Remaining Amortization Period (Years) Unvested at July 1, 2018 28,562 $ 6.06 Vested (10,629 ) 5.67 Expired (7,777 ) 10.05 Unvested contingent shares at March 31, 2019 10,156 $ 3.42 $ 3,029 .25 Stock-based compensation expense related to Restricted Stock and Contingent Restricted Stock grants for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 was $208,665 and $352,420 , respectively. For the corresponding nine month periods, stock-based compensation expense was $678,149 and $1,324,230 , respectively.

Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]
Income TaxesIncome Taxes We file a consolidated federal income tax return in the United States and various combined and separate filings in several state and local jurisdictions. There were neither unrecognized tax benefits nor any accrued interest or penalties associated with unrecognized tax benefits during any periods presented in the financial statements. We believe we have appropriate support for the income tax positions taken and to be taken on our tax returns and that the accruals for tax liabilities are adequate for all open years based on our assessment of various factors including past experience and interpretations of tax law applied to the facts of each matter. The Company’s federal and state income tax returns are open to audit under the statute of limitations for the years ended June 30, 2015 through June 30, 2018 for federal tax purposes and for the years ended June 30, 2014 through June 30, 2018 for state tax purposes. To the extent we utilize net operating losses generated in earlier years, such earlier years may also be subject to audit. For the nine months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 , respectively, we recognized income tax expense of $2.8 million and an income tax benefit of $(4.1) million . This benefit included a one-time $6.0 million tax credit, resulting from adjustment of our deferred income tax liabilities at December 31, 2017 in connection with enactment of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act"). For the nine months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 , the corresponding effective tax rates were 19% and (37)% . Our effective tax rate will typically differ from the statutory federal rate as a result of state income taxes, primarily in the State of Louisiana, and differences related to percentage depletion in excess of basis, stock-based compensation and other permanent differences. For the nine months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 , our respective statutory federal tax rates were 21% and 27.55% , as we used a blended rate during the prior fiscal year in which the Tax Act was enacted. The benefit of this statutory rate reduction was partially offset by a decreased benefit from depletion in excess of basis as much of our depletion carryover had been utilized in fiscal 2018.

Senior Secured Credit AgreementSenior Secured Credit Agreement On April 11, 2016, the Company entered into a three -year, senior secured reserve-based credit facility ("Facility") in an amount up to $50 million . On May 25, 2018, we entered into the third amendment to our credit agreement governing the revolving credit facility to, among other things, extend the maturity date to April 11, 2021. On December 31, 2018, we entered into the fourth amendment to our credit agreement governing the revolving credit facility to broaden the definition for the Use of Proceeds. As of March 31, 2019 , the Company's elected commitment and borrowing base were $40 million , we were in compliance with all financial covenants and there were no amounts outstanding under the Facility, which is secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets. Under the Facility the borrowing base shall be determined semiannually as of every May 15 and November 15 during the term of the Facility. During the current quarter, the bank performed its periodic spring redetermination of the borrowing base and confirmed our elected amount of $40 million . Borrowings from the Facility may be used for the acquisition and development of oil and gas properties, investments in cash flow generating assets complimentary to the production of oil and gas, and for letters of credit and other general corporate purposes. The Facility included a placement fee of 0.50% on the initial borrowing base, amounting to $50,000 , and carries a commitment fee of 0.25% per annum on the undrawn portion of the borrowing base. Any borrowings under the Facility will bear interest, at the Company’s option, at either LIBOR plus 2.75% or the Prime Rate, as defined under the Facility, plus 1.00% . The Facility contains financial covenants including a requirement that the Company maintain, as of the last day of each fiscal quarter, (a) a maximum total leverage ratio of not more than 3.00 to 1.00, (b) a debt service coverage ratio of not less than 1.10 to 1.00, and (c) a consolidated tangible net worth of not less than $50 million , all as defined under the Facility. In connection with this agreement, the Company incurred $168,972 of debt issuance costs. Such costs were capitalized in Other Assets and are being amortized to expense. The unamortized balance in debt issuance costs related to the Facility was $30,834 as of March 31, 2019 .

Commitments and ContingenciesCommitments and Contingencies We are subject to various claims and contingencies in the normal course of business. In addition, from time to time, we receive communications from government or regulatory agencies concerning investigations or allegations of noncompliance with laws or regulations in jurisdictions in which we operate. At a minimum, we disclose such matters if we believe it is reasonably possible that a future event or events will confirm a loss through impairment of an asset or the incurrence of a liability. We accrue a loss if we believe it is probable that a future event or events will confirm a loss and we can reasonably estimate such loss and we do not accrue future legal costs related to that loss. Furthermore, we will disclose any matter that is unasserted if we consider it probable that a claim will be asserted and there is a reasonable possibility that the outcome will be unfavorable. We expense legal defense costs as they are incurred. Lease Commitment. At March 31, 2019 , we had a future minimum lease commitment under an operating lease for office space as follows: Twelve month periods ended March 31, 2020 $ 12,179 Rent expense for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 was $18,568 and $18,568 , respectively.

Enduro Purchase and Sale AgreementEnduro Purchase and Sale Agreement The Company entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement ("PSA") on May 15, 2018, to acquire, as the "stalking horse" bidder, certain oil and gas assets from an affiliate of Enduro Resource Partners LLC ("Enduro") for a purchase price of $27.5 million , subject to the outcome of Enduro's Chapter 11 process. Contemporaneous with executing the PSA, the Company made a $2.75 million deposit to an acquisition escrow account which was reflected in restricted cash together with earned interest on the Company's June 30, 2018 statement of financial position. On July 20, 2018, the Company was repaid its deposit together with related earned interest as a higher bidder emerged in the Chapter 11 bidding process. In August 2018, upon the closing of a higher bidder's purchase transaction, the Company received payment of a $1.1 million breakup fee under the terms of the PSA. This breakup fee was effectively intended to cover the Company’s Enduro transaction costs, time and effort, substantially all of which occurred before June 30, 2018.

Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]
Principles of Consolidation and ReportingPrinciples of Consolidation and Reporting. Our consolidated financial statements include the accounts of EPM and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (the "Company"). All significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The consolidated financial statements for the previous year may include certain reclassifications to conform to the current presentation. Any such reclassifications have no impact on previously reported net income or stockholders' equity.
Use of EstimatesUse of Estimates. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Significant estimates include (a) reserve quantities and estimated future cash flows associated with proved reserves, which may significantly impact depletion expense and potential impairments of oil and natural gas properties, (b) asset retirement obligations, (c) stock-based compensation, (d) fair values of derivative assets and liabilities, (e) income taxes and the valuation of deferred tax assets and (f) commitments and contingencies. We analyze our estimates based on historical experience and various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable. While we believe that our estimates and assumptions used in preparation of the consolidated financial statements are appropriate, actual results could differ from those estimates.
Revenue RecognitionRevenue Recognition Effective July 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue From Contracts With Customers (Topic 606) (“ASC 606”) using the full retrospective method and has applied the standard to all existing contracts. ASC 606 supersedes previous revenue recognition requirements in ASC 605 - Revenue Recognition (“ASC 605”) and includes a five-step revenue recognition model to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration in exchange for those goods or services. As a result of adopting ASC 606, the Company did not have a cumulative-effect adjustment in retained earnings. The comparative information presented therein for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2018 reflects the reclassification on our consolidated statement of operations of $98,411 and $375,006 , respectively, from “Production Costs” to “Revenue - Natural Gas Liquids” in conformance with ASC 606. These changes to revenue and production costs resulted from the conclusion that the Company did not control the product throughout processing before transferring to the customer. Therefore, costs incurred after the transfer of control are treated as reductions of revenue. Additionally, adoption of ASC 606 did not impact net income attributable to common stockholders, current assets, total assets, current liabilities, total liabilities or stockholders’ equity and the Company does not expect that it will do so in future periods. Our revenues are comprised solely of revenues from customers from the sale of crude oil, NGLs and natural gas. The Company believes that the disaggregation of revenue on its consolidated statements of operations into these three major product types appropriately depicts how the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors based on our single geographic location. Crude oil and NGL revenues are recognized at a point in time when production is sold to a purchaser at an index-based, determinable price, delivery has occurred, control has transferred and collectibility of the revenue is probable. The transaction price used to recognize revenue is a function of the contract billing terms which reference index price sources used by the industry. Revenue is invoiced by calendar month based on volumes at contractually based rates with payment typically required within 30 days for crude oil and 60 days for NGLs after the end of the production month. At the end of each month when the performance obligations have been satisfied, the consideration can be reasonably estimated and amounts due from customers are accrued in “Receivables” in our consolidated balance sheets.
Recently Issued Accounting PronouncementsOther Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments - Overall: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities ("ASU 2016-01"). The pronouncement requires equity investments (except those accounted for under the equity method of accounting, or those that result in consolidation of the investees) to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income, requires public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes, requires separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial asset, and eliminates the requirement for public business entities to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost. Effective July 1, 2018, the Company prospectively adopted ASU 2016-01 without impact to its consolidated financial position or results of operations. Because its investment in Well Lift Inc. does not have a readily determinable fair value, the Company elected to measure this investment at cost less impairment, if any, plus or minus changes resulting from observable price changes in orderly transactions for the identical or a similar investment of the same issuer, if they were to occur. Effective July 1, 2018, the Company retrospectively adopted ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which is intended to reduce diversity in practice in how certain transactions are classified in the statement of cash flows. The guidance addresses eight specific cash flow issues for which current GAAP is either unclear or does not include specific guidance. Adoption had no effect on our current period and comparative consolidated statements of cash flows. Effective July 1, 2018, the Company prospectively adopted ASU No. 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business, which clarifies the definition of a business to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The Company will apply the clarified definition of business to future acquistions and divestitures. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASU 2016-02”), which relates to the accounting for leasing transactions. This standard requires a lessee to record on the balance sheet the assets and liabilities for the rights and obligations created by leases with lease terms of more than twelve months. In addition, this standard requires both lessees and lessors to disclose certain key information about lease transactions. This standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We are evaluating the impact the adoption of ASU 2016-02 will have on our consolidated financial statements and we do not expect the standard to have a material impact.
