In March 2015, the Company completed the integration of the InstaManager and Kigo platforms into a single solution marketed under the Kigo name. Subsequent to this integration, the Company discontinued the use of the InstaManager trade name to market or identify the software. Due to this change in circumstance, the Company evaluated the InstaManager trade name for impairment and concluded an impairment in the amount of $0.5 million existed at March 31, 2015.
In connection with the preparation of the third quarter 2015 financial statements, the Company identified indicators requiring the assessment of certain indefinite-lived trade names for impairment, primarily associated with the Company’s 2011 acquisition of MyNewPlace. Identified indicators included declines in actual and anticipated lead-generation revenues and a change in the Company’s long-term marketing strategy. As a result, the Company analyzed these intangible assets and recorded a $20.3 million impairment charge during the third quarter of 2015, representing the amount by which the carrying value of the indefinite-lived trade names exceeded their estimated fair value. Given the change in the Company’s long-term marketing strategy and anticipated use of the trade names, the remaining balance was reclassified to finite-lived intangible assets as of September 30, 2015. The trade names were assigned an estimated useful life of seven years, amortized on a straight-line basis.
In the fourth quarter of 2016, we sold certain assets associated with our senior living referral services with a net carrying value of $3.7 million. Based on the status of the sale negotiations at the end of the third quarter, we determined there was a possibility that certain of the assets could be impaired and performed an impairment analysis. As a result of that analysis we recorded an impairment of the associated trade names at September 30, 2016, in the amount of $0.8 million, the amount by which the carrying value of the trade names exceeded their estimated fair value on the date of analysis.
The above impairment charges are included in “Impairment of identified intangible assets” in the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Operations. See Note 12 for discussion of the methodology and inputs utilized by the Company to estimate the fair value of these indefinite-lived trade names.
