amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue from contracts with customers. The core principle is to recognize revenue to depict 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. ASU 2014-09 must be adopted using either a full retrospective method or a modified retrospective method.
We formed a project team to implement this standard and the team has scoped, identified the relevant revenue streams and documented the procedures and control changes required to address the impacts that ASU 2014-09 may have had on our business. We are now in the process of training our staff on the procedures and controls that went into effect January 1, 2018. Our implementation efforts included the identification of revenue streams with similar contract structures, performing a detailed review of key contracts by revenue stream and comparing historical policies and practices to the new standard. The Company’s services and rental contracts, which principally charge on a day rate basis, are primarily short-term in nature, and therefore, based on the assessment, the Company has concluded that the adoption of this ASU will not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements. We have adopted the new standard effective January 1, 2018 using the full retrospective method.
ITEM 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
When we had operations in Russia, which was sold in the third quarter of 2017, we were exposed to certain market risks as part of our former business operations, including risks from changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates that could have impacted our financial position, results of operations and cash flows. We managed our exposure to these risks through regular operating and financing activities, and could have, on a limited basis, used derivative financial instruments to manage this risk. Derivative financial instruments were not used in the years ended December 31, 2017, 2016 and 2015. To the extent that we would have used such derivative financial instruments, we would have used them only as risk management tools and not for speculative investment purposes.
Interest Rate Risk
Borrowings under our Term Loan Facility bear interest at variable interest rates, and therefore expose us to interest rate risk. As of December 31, 2017, the interest rate on our outstanding variable-rate debt obligations was 11.61%. A hypothetical 10% increase in that rate would increase the annual interest expense on those instruments by $2.9 million. Borrowings under our ABL Facility also bear interest at variable interest rates, however, there are no borrowings under this facility as of December 31, 2017.
Foreign Currency Risk
As of December 31, 2017, we no longer conduct operations in Russia. We completed the sale of our Russian subsidiary in the third quarter of 2017. We also had a Canadian subsidiary which was sold in the second quarter of 2017. The local currency was the functional currency for our former operations in Russia. For balances denominated in our former Russian subsidiary's local currency, changes in the value of their assets and liabilities due to changes in exchange rates were deferred and accumulated in other comprehensive income until we liquidated our investment. Our former Russian subsidiary remeasured its account balances at the end of each period to an equivalent amount of U.S. dollars, with changes reflected in earnings during those periods. A hypothetical 10% decrease in the average value of the U.S. dollar relative to the value of the local currency for our former Russian subsidiary would have increased our net loss by $0.2 million.
