|Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets||
The Company's carrying amount of goodwill for the periods ended September 30, 2011 and March 31, 2011 was $6,609
We complete our annual impairment tests in the fourth quarter of each year unless events or circumstances indicate that an asset may be impaired. There were no indications of impairment present during the period ended September 30, 2011. Fair value is defined under ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures as, “The price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date”. The Company considered a number of valuation approaches and methods and applied the most appropriate methods from the income, and market approaches to derive an opinion of value. Under the income approach, the Company utilized the discounted cash flow method, and under the market approach, consideration was given to the guideline public company method, the merger and acquisition method, and the market capitalization method.
Other Intangible Assets
The following is a reconciliation of the changes to the Company's carrying amount of intangible assets for the period ended September 30, 2011 and the year ended March 31, 2011:
The components of intangible assets as at September 30, 2011 and March 31, 2011 were as follows:
The Company has included amortization of acquired intangible assets directly attributable to revenue-generating activities in cost of revenues. The Company has included amortization of acquired intangible assets not directly attributable to revenue-generating activities in operating expenses. The Company recorded amortization expense for continuing operations of $58 and $86, and $115 and $172 during the three and six month periods ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, in cost of revenues; and amortization expense in the amount of $0 and $19, and $0 and $36 during the three and six month periods ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, in operating expenses. During the three and six month periods ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 the Company recorded amortization expense for discontinued operations in the amount of $0 and $0, and $0 and $26, respectively, in cost of revenues; and amortization expense in the amount of $0 and $0, and $0 and $40, respectively, in operating expenses.
Based on the amortizable intangible assets as of September 30, 2011, we estimate amortization expense for the next five years to be as follows:
The entire disclosure for the aggregate amount of goodwill and a description of intangible assets, which may include (a) for amortizable intangible assets (also referred to as finite-lived intangible assets), the carrying amount, the amount of any significant residual value, and the weighted-average amortization period, (b) for intangible assets not subject to amortization (also referred to as indefinite-lived intangible assets), the carrying amount, and (c) the amount of research and development assets acquired and written off in the period, including the line item in the income statement in which the amounts written off are aggregated, if not readily apparent from the income statement. Also discloses (a) for amortizable intangibles assets in total and by major class, the gross carrying amount and accumulated amortization, the total amortization expense for the period, and the estimated aggregate amortization expense for each of the five succeeding fiscal years, (b) for intangible assets not subject to amortization the carrying amount in total and by major class, and (c) for goodwill, in total and for each reportable segment, the changes in the carrying amount of goodwill during the period (including the aggregate amount of goodwill acquired, the aggregate amount of impairment losses recognized, and the amount of goodwill included in the gain (loss) on disposal of a reporting unit). If any part of goodwill has not been allocated to a reportable segment, discloses the unallocated amount and the reasons for not allocating. For each impairment loss recognized related to an intangible asset (excluding goodwill), discloses: (a) a description of the impaired intangible asset and the facts and circumstances leading to the impairment, (b) the amount of the impairment loss and the method for determining fair value, (c) the caption in the income statement or the statement of activities in which the impairment loss is aggregated, and (d) the segment in which the impaired intangible asset is reported. For each goodwill impairment loss recognized, discloses: (a) a description of the facts and circumstances leading to the impairment, (b) the amount of the impairment loss and the method of determining the fair value of the associated reporting unit, and (c) if a recognized impairment loss is an estimate not finalized and the reasons why the estimate is not final.
