Impairment of Long-Lived Assets


We account for long-lived assets in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 360-10, Property, Plant and Equipment. We periodically review our long-lived assets for impairment and reassess the reasonableness of their estimated useful lives whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable or that an asset’s probability of operating through its estimated remaining useful life changes. Our review requires us to estimate the fair value of the assets when events or circumstances indicate that they may be impaired. The fair value measurements for our long-lived assets use significant observable inputs that reflect our own assumptions about the estimates that market participants would use in measuring fair value including assumptions about risk. If actual future results are less favorable than the assumptions and estimates we used, we are subject to future impairment charges, the amount of which may be material.

There were no indications of impairment during the period ended September 30, 2018. We reviewed long-lived assets associated with Preaching Magazine, YouthWorker Journal, FaithTalk Magazine and Homecoming The Magazine as of March 31, 2017, due to our decision to cease publishing these magazines as of the May 2017 issue. We recorded a $1.9 million decrease in the cost and a $1.9 million decrease in the accumulated amortization for fully amortized assets, including subscriber lists and domain names associated with these magazines. There was no impairment loss or adjustment required to the previously estimated useful lives of these assets.
