NOTE 5 – INTANGIBLE ASSETS:
Intangible assets are comprised of the following:
Finite-lived intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives. Intangible amortization expense for each of the three-month periods ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 was $45. Intangible amortization expense for each of the nine-month periods ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 was $135. As of December 31, 2017, amortization expense is estimated to be $45 for the remainder of fiscal 2018 and $180 in each of the fiscal years ending March 31, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.
During the third quarter of fiscal 2018, the Company performed its annual goodwill and intangible asset impairment review. The Company assesses impairment by comparing the fair value of its reporting units and intangible assets to their related carrying value. Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-07, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820), establishes a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. The hierarchy is broken down into three levels based on the reliability of inputs as follows:
Level 1 – Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets of liabilities that the Company has the ability to access. Since valuations are based on quoted prices that are readily and regularly available in an active market, valuation of these products does not entail a significant degree of judgment.
Level 2 – Valuations determined from quoted prices for similar assets of liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical instruments in markets that are not active or by model-based techniques in which all significant inputs are observable in the market.
Level 3 – Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement. The degree of judgment exercised in determining fair value is greatest for instruments categorized in Level 3.
The Company estimated the fair value of intangible assets and goodwill of its commercial nuclear power business related to the December 2010 acquisition of Energy Steel & Supply Co. (“Energy Steel”) using the income approach. Under the income approach, the fair value of the business is calculated based on the present value of estimated future cash flows. Cash flow projections are based on management’s estimates of revenue growth rates and operating margins, taking into consideration industry and market conditions. The discount rate used is based on a weighted average cost of capital adjusted for the relevant risk associated with the characteristics of the business and the projected cash flows. The inputs utilized in the analyses are classified as Level 3 inputs within the fair value hierarchy outlined above. The impairment review indicated that the fair value of the permits, tradename and goodwill of the business were substantially lower than the carrying value due to reduced investment from the U.S. nuclear power market, the strength of the Energy Steel brand relative to larger more vertically integrated suppliers, and the bankruptcy of Westinghouse Electric Company which resulted in the stoppage of work at the Summer, SC nuclear facility. As a result, in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 the Company recorded impairment losses of $8,600, $500, and $5,716 for permits, tradename and goodwill, respectively.
