Goodwill Impairment Testing


Galaxy Sports Inc. (Galaxy), a U.S.-based manufacturer of sports equipment, is a calendar year-end SEC registrant with one operating segment and the following three reporting units: o Fitness Equipment. o Golf Equipment. o Hockey Equipment.



Galaxy is in a competitive industry with several publicly traded companies in which growth and profitability are tied to the market and consumer demand.



Three reporting units are appropriate because discrete financial information is available for each component, each component is a business, and each component is managed separately.



The Fitness Equipment component is Galaxy’s largest reporting unit. Over the years, various acquisitions have resulted in recorded goodwill of $200 million assigned entirely to this reporting unit.



The Golf Equipment component is a large golf equipment manufacturer that was acquired in 2004. Upon acquisition of the business, Galaxy recorded $130 million of goodwill that was assigned entirely to this reporting unit.



The Hockey Equipment component is a small hockey equipment manufacturer acquired in 2003 to gain entry into the very profitable hockey equipment market.
Galaxy recorded $30 million of goodwill related to this acquisition, which was assigned entirely to this reporting unit.



Galaxy has elected an annual goodwill impairment testing date of December 31 for all three reporting units.

In December 2009, Galaxy management engaged Big Time LLC (Big Time), a reputable external valuation firm, to perform three annual ASC 350, Intangibles — Goodwill and
Other, impairment analyses (one for each reporting unit) on the $360 million of goodwill recorded by Galaxy as of December 31, 2009. Previously, management had performed the annual goodwill impairment analysis internally. However, given the…...

Impairment of Assets

...– IAS 36 Impairment of Assets A. The purpose of this project is to provide an understanding on the process of impairment of assets and determining how it affects the financial statement and its users. B. The main purpose of standard IAS 36 is to ensure that the assets reported of Balance Sheet are recorded at no more than its recoverable amount. An asset or cash-generating unit will be considered impaired if the carrying amount is greater than the value of the sale of the asset or amount that could be recovered through use of the asset. The standard provides procedures that an entity must apply to properly measure the recoverable amount, recognize and measure impairment loss, reversing an impairment loss and proper disclosures. The standard applies to all assets except: * Inventories * Assets arising from construction contracts * Employee benefit assets * Deferred tax assets * Financial assets under IAS 39 * Investment property measure at fair value * Biological assets based on fair value * Deferred acquisition costs and intangible assets covered in IFRS 4 * Non-current assets as it pertains to IFRS 5 Identifying Impaired Assets Asset: Entities must assess if there are any indications that an asset may be impaired at the end of every reporting period. If any indicators are discovered must test for impairment. Intangibles with indefinite useful life or asset not yet available for use and goodwill: Must be tested on the......

Impairment

...Dear Mr. Gabriel, In response to your inquiry regarding potential adjustments to the carrying value of your corporation’s tangible assets for possible impairments in value and also for possible impairment of value of the Goodwill booked on the corporation’s Balance Sheet, I have researched and concluded the following information and proper disclosures for XYZ Corporation. Tangible Assets Let’s begin with the tangible assets of the corporation. Over the useful life of the asset, it is necessary to periodically test for impairment. Impairment exists when the carrying value of a long-lived asset exceeds the fair value of the asset and is not recoverable. Various events and changes in circumstances can lead to an impairment, they include but are not limited to; a decrease in fair value of an asset, a change in the manner the asset is used, adverse changes in legal factors or the business climate that affects that value of the asset, and projected continual losses associated with the asset. To measure if there has been impairment on an asset, we must perform a recoverability test. The recoverability test has two steps. The first step is to compare the future net cash flows of the asset to the carrying value (book value) of the asset. If the future net cash flows are more than the carrying value, the asset is not impaired. However, if the future net cash flows are less than the carrying value, then the asset is impaired and the second step of the recoverability test needs......

Eagle Impairment

...The case begins with describing Eagle impairment, which is a manufacturing company, which has operations in Italy and Serbia. In Italy Eagle owns and operates a commercial building that is carried at its cost less depreciation. The case then gives us a chart which shows us Cash generating unit that includes: carrying amount $1,100, value in use 900, fair market value less costs to sell 800, fair market value 850, and undiscounted future cash flows 1,150 all in thousands. Eagle’s manufacturing company in Serbia attained a smaller competing company. The activities in Serbia are regarded as not impaired because the value in the use of CGU including goodwill exceeds its carrying amount. By the end of 2010 the govt passed a legislation drastically restricting exports of eagle’s main merchandise. The CGU in the end of 2010 was altered because of the new legislation, which included: cash $50, property plant and equipment 1,100, land 150, goodwill 300, total assets 1,600, liabilities (200), and carrying value 1,400 all in thousands. The case goes on to show us a 5 year business forecast of Eagle Impairment. It reflects an increase in the amount of capital expenditures in order to modify Eagle’s mail product. Eagle uses straight line depreciation and anticipates no residual value. 1. I assume the commercial building meets the requirements for a recoverable test under IFRS. The carrying value is $1,100 whci is greater than the claue in use which is $900. The fair market value......

Goodwill Impairment

...reporting unit. When performing step one of the Goodwill Impairment Testing we will consider two separate reporting units. The first reporting unit is the business component Medical-Surgical. Step one involves comparing the carrying value (including goodwill) with the fair value of the reporting unit. Carrying Value without Goodwill Carrying Value of Goodwill Total Carrying Value including Goodwill $118,800,000 3,200,000 $122,000,000 Fair Value Difference Carrying Value including Goodwill $125,000,000 FV > CV by $3,000,000 $122,000,000 When we compare this value with the Fair Value we see that the Fair Value is higher by $3,000,000. This means that Goodwill is not impaired and no further steps need to be taken. Now to compare the second reporting unit, DDC Distribution and HC Holding that are aggregated. We must first find the total carrying value, including Goodwill, of the two components. Value/Amount DDC Distribution HC Holdings Total Carrying Value of Net Assets (w/o Goodwill) $231,700,000 $72,250,000 $303,950,000 Carrying Value of Goodwill $10,500,000 $2,150,000 $12,650,000 Total Carrying Value including Goodwill $242,200,000 $74,400,000 $316,600,000 Now we follow step one and compare the carry value to fair value. Fair Value Difference Carrying Value including Goodwill $236,000,000 + 75,000,000 = $311,000,000 FV < CV by $5,600,000 $316,600,000 The second reporting unit has a goodwill impairment that must be computed and recorded.

Impairment

...Impairment of Securities Securties are classified into one of three categories: available for sale, held to maturity, or trading. The concept of impairment does not really apply to trading securities as they are only held for short periods. The impairment of securities that are deemed available for sale or held to maturity is a three step process. The first step is to determine if the security is impaired by comparing the fair value to the cost of the security. The cost includes any amortization and any previous impairments. The second step is to determine if the loss is temporary or “other than temporary”. This is the step that can cause the most controversy in the impairment process. The process of determining if the loss is temporary or not is highly subjective and is based on the opinion of the holder of the security. It is supposed to be based on the time and extent of the loss, the issuers financial standing, and the intent and ability of the holder. These criteria are very loosely defined parameters and lead to most impairments being classified as temporary. Many accountants have complained about how ambiguous the guidelines for this classification can be. The classification of an impairment of a security as temporary is highly advantageous for a company as it is recorded in OCI and can be recovered. This means that the loss is excluded from operations and does not affect some of the financial statements. However, if the loss is determined to be “other than temporary”...

Assessment of Impairment

...MEMORANDUM TO: Engagement Partner FROM: Date: September 4, 2013 ------------------------------------------------- Subject: Review and Opinion of Assessment of Opinion (Scenario B) I my opinion, I agree with Company X classification of its impaired equity securities in Company B as temporary for the December 31, 2010, balance sheet date. According to the FASB Accounting Codification 320-10-35-33 equity securities are classified as other than temporary in the period in which an entity has decided to sell the securities and the loss on impairment of those securities are to be recorded in the period of the entity’s decision to sale the securities, not the period of the actual sale of the securities. Company X provided written representation to its auditor’s stating it had the intent and ability to hold the securities until there was a recovery in the impairment. Since Company X did not have a definite decision to sell the impaired securities as of the December 31, 2010, balance date the classification of the securities as temporary is supported by this Codification. On March 15, 2011, Company B informed the public of an up-coming organization restructure that would cause an initial loss of revenue and high initial costs. Following this announcement, Company X sold it securities in Company B for a loss. I believe the sale of the equity securities would not affect the 2010, financial statements, which were released on March 1, 2011. Since the sale occurred sometime......

Impairment of Investments

...Date: March 5, 2014 To: Jim Beatty Re: Impairment of Investments Impairment to overall security portfolio: Anne Surrey Inc. will need to assess impairment on an individual basis for each security. The FASB guidance states, “Impairment shall be assessed at the individual security level (referred to as an investment). Individual security level means the level and method of aggregation used by the reporting entity to measure realized and unrealized gains and losses on its debt and equity securities” (ASC – 320-10-35-20). Anne Surrey will need to impair certain securities, even though the overall investment portfolio is in an unrealized gain position, because each security needs to be value and tested for impairment separately. Guidelines for determining whether an investment is other-than-temporary: Some guidelines, as described in the ASB 111, for whether a decline in value of a security classified as available-for-sale should be classified as other than temporary are as follows: a. The length of the time and the extent to which the market value has been less than cost; b. The financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer, including any specific events which may influence the operations of the issuer such as changes in technology that may impair the earnings potential of the investment r the discontinuance of a segment of the business that may affect the future earnings potential; or c. The intent and ability of the holder to retain its......

Goodwill Impairment

...Goodwill Impairment – FASC Section 350 a. What is Step 1 in the two step process for evaluating goodwill? The first step of the goodwill evaluation process compares the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount, including goodwill (350-20-35-4). b. What is Step 2 in the two step process for evaluating goodwill? The second step of the goodwill evaluation process compares the implied fair value of reporting unit goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill (350-20-35-9). c. Can the fair value of goodwill be measured directly? The fair value of goodwill can be measured only as a residual and cannot be measured directly (350-20-35-2). d. What factor(s) allow an entity to skip the “two step” process? If, after assessing the totality of events or circumstances such as those described in 350-20-35-3C, an entity determines that it is not more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, then the first and second steps of the goodwill impairment test are unnecessary (350-20-35-3D). e. When should an interim test be performed? If the carrying amount of a reporting unit is zero or negative, goodwill of that reporting unit shall be tested for impairment on an annual or interim basis if an event occurs or circumstances exist that indicate that it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment exists (350-20-35-30). f. List some example impairment indicators. a. A significant decrease......

The focus of investors now centers upon whether financial reports truly reflect the value of enterprises. To increase the transparency of financial statements of domestic enterprises, to improve understanding by foreign investors, and to help bring the Taiwan stock market more in-line with international standards, the Financial Accounting Standards Committee of Taiwan promulgated the “Accounting for Impairment of Assets” in its Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 35 on July 1, 2004, which applies to the financial reports of companies with fiscal year ending on December 31, 2004. Companies can also elect to adopt this rule earlier than the required date. Because this is the first time “impairment of assets” accounting is adopted in Taiwan, many enterprises will experience a significant impact. It is also expected that share prices will reflect the “short-term pain for long-term benefits” view in the capital markets. This research paper employs case study methods to investigate the......
