Goodwill Impairment
Goodwill and equity method investments are non-financial instruments that are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis. In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350) - Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment, which simplifies the test for goodwill impairment by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. Step 2 measured a goodwill impairment loss by comparing the implied fair value of a reporting unit’s goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill. The guidance was adopted during the first quarter of 2017.
For the period ended March 31, 2020, the Company identified a triggering event due to a significant decline in the market capitalization of the Company and results of operations predominately impacted by the uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Accordingly, the Company assessed the fair value of its six reporting units as of March 31, 2020 and recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $22.1 million related to its Maritime & Land Connectivity reporting unit. There was no additional impairment of goodwill identified by Management for the three months ended June 30, 2020. As of June 30, 2020, the cumulative impairment write-offs relating to our Aviation Connectivity and our Maritime & Land Connectivity reporting units was $44.0 million and $209.1 million, respectively. The Company is required to test goodwill for impairment on an annual basis and, if current events or circumstances require, on an interim basis. Our next annual impairment evaluation is scheduled during the fourth quarter of 2020.
