Contingencies
1. Gain contingency

2. Loss contingency
--> a loss will incur if certain future events occur or not occur

A loss contingency

2. if a loss is "reasonably possible" --> disclose in the notes
3. if the possibility of a loss is "remote" --> disclosure is not required

A gain contingency
