ACCOUNTING STANDARDS ADOPTED
Standard/Description: This new lease accounting standard requires that we recognize leased assets and corresponding liabilities on the balance sheet and provide enhanced disclosure of lease activity.
Effective Date and Adoption Considerations: Effective in the first quarter of 2019. The standard was adopted applying the modified retrospective approach at the beginning of the period of adoption. Our leased assets and corresponding liabilities exclude non-lease components.
Effect on Financial Statements or Other Significant Matters: Within the opening balances for the fiscal year beginning December 30, 2018, we recognized leased assets and corresponding liabilities in other long-term assets of $706 million, which includes $81 million of previously recognized prepaid land use rights, as well as corresponding accrued liabilities of $180 million and other long-term liabilities of $445 million.
Accounting Policy Updates and Disclosures: We determine if an arrangement is a lease at inception and classify it as finance or operating. Leased assets and corresponding liabilities are recognized based on the present value of the lease payments over the lease term. Our lease terms may include options to extend when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. We have lease agreements with lease and non-lease components, and the non-lease components are accounted for separately and not included in our leased assets and corresponding liabilities. Leases primarily consist of real property, and, to a lesser extent, certain machinery and equipment.
We recognized leased assets in other long-term assets of $628 million and corresponding accrued liabilities of $175 million, and other long-term liabilities of $375 million as of December 28, 2019. Our leases have remaining terms of 1 to 9 years, some of which may include options to extend the leases for up to 39 years. The weighted average remaining lease term was 4.7 years, and the weighted average discount rate was 3.4% as of December 28, 2019.
For the twelve months ended December 28, 2019, lease expense was $185 million. In accordance with the new leases standard, discounted and undiscounted lease payments under non-cancelable leases as of December 28, 2019, excluding non-lease components, were as follows:
Lease expense was $231 million in 2018 ($264 million in 2017). Prior to our adoption of the new leases standard, future minimum lease payments as of December 29, 2018, which were undiscounted and included lease and non-lease components, were as follows:
