value of money, and is consistent with Kirkers peer group. After recording the goodwill impairment charge of
$140.5 million, no goodwill remained on the Kirker balance sheets as of November 30, 3016.
Our other intangible asset impairment assessment involved
estimating the fair value of each of Kirkers amortizable intangibles and other long-lived assets as well as the indefinite-lived tradename asset and comparing it with its carrying amount. Measuring a potential impairment of amortizable
intangibles and other long-lived assets requires the use of various estimates and assumptions, including the determination of which cash flows are directly related to the assets being evaluated, the respective useful lives over which those cash
flows will occur and potential residual values, if any. As the results of our testing indicated that the carrying values of certain of these assets would not be recoverable, as outlined in further detail in the table above, we recorded other
intangible asset impairments of approximately $46.0 million during the fiscal year ended May 31, 2017.
Calculating the fair value of the Kirker
indefinite-lived tradename required our significant use of estimates and assumptions. We estimated the fair value of Kirkers indefinite-lived tradename by applying a relief-from-royalty calculation, which included discounted future cash flows
related to its projected revenues. In applying this methodology, we relied on a number of factors, including actual and forecasted revenues and market data for the nail enamel industry. As the carrying amount of the tradename exceeded its fair
value, we recorded an impairment loss of approximately $2.1 million during the fiscal year ended May 31, 2017.
Certain assets and liabilities are subject
to nonrecurring fair value measurements, which typically are remeasured at fair value as a result of impairment charges. As a result of the impairment testing described above, the fair value of Kirkers identifiable intangible assets and
indefinite-lived tradename were recalculated, and the resulting fair value approximated $5.8 million. Based upon our review of the fair value hierarchy,
the inputs used in these fair value measurements were considered Level 3 inputs.
During the third quarter of fiscal 2017, we identified certain factors that we considered important in assessing the requirement to perform an interim impairment
evaluation for our Restore indefinite tradename asset. First, sales of our Restore product line during the quarter ended February 28, 2017 were below historical and expected operating results and significant downward adjustments were recently
made to sales projections for Restore products. In the quarter ended February 28, 2017, we became aware that it was highly likely that Restores largest customer would discontinue sales of the Restore product line in its retail stores,
which was evidenced by this customers significant reduction in future orders based on its historical order pattern. We determined that this was significant to consider for the purposes of impairment testing, as sales of Restore products to
this customer accounted for over 60% of total sales of Restore products for fiscal 2016. After considering the magnitude of the loss in sales volume from this key customer, we determined that it was necessary to perform an interim assessment for the
other intangible assets and indefinite-lived tradename related to the Restore product line.
Our impairment assessment involved estimating the fair value of the
indefinite-lived tradename and comparing it with its carrying amount. Calculating the fair value of the Restore indefinite-lived tradename required our significant use of estimates and assumptions. We estimated the fair value of the Restore
indefinite-lived tradename by applying a relief-from-royalty calculation, which included discounted future cash flows related to its projected revenues. In applying this methodology, we relied on a number of factors, including actual and forecasted
revenues for sales of the Restore product line. As the carrying amount of the tradename exceeded its fair value, we recorded an impairment charge of $4.9 million during the fiscal year ended May 31, 2017. Additionally, a further assessment
of the remaining useful life of the Restore tradename was performed, which resulted in a change to its remaining economic useful life, from an indefinite-life to a 10-year amortizable life.
