The Financial Accounting Standards Board released the proposed modifications to Financial Interpretation No. 46 - a relative non-event given the content, though anticipated nonetheless (see p. 3). Also, a sneak peak at the Emerging Issues Task Force 03-15, which addresses sale treatment of CDOs, passed through the market's hands (see p. 3). The topic will be discussed at the EITF meeting on Thursday.
