Note 9. Intangible Assets and Goodwill
Intangible Assets, net:
Intangible assets consisted of the following as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021:
The intangible assets are being amortized over their respective original useful lives, which range from 10-12 years. The Company recorded amortization expense of $0.3 million and $0.03 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The Company recorded amortization expense of $0.7 million and $0.05 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
The estimated future amortization expense associated with intangible assets is as follows:
The following table represents the changes in goodwill for the six months ended June 30, 2022:
Goodwill represents the excess future economic benefits of a business combination and is measured as the excess of consideration transferred over the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. Accounting for goodwill involves significant management judgment both in the initial measurement through purchase price allocations of business combinations and valuations of assets acquired within those business combinations and in the ongoing assessment of impairment. Goodwill is not amortized, but instead is tested for impairment annually during the fourth quarter each year or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the asset might be impaired.
When assessing goodwill for impairment, first, qualitative factors are assessed to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value. A qualitative impairment assessment involves analyzing relevant events and circumstances, with greater weight assigned to events and circumstances that most affect the fair value or the carrying amounts of a reporting unit’s assets. Items that are generally considered include, but are not limited to, the following: macroeconomic conditions, industry and market conditions and overall financial performance. If the results of the qualitative assessment are not conclusive, a quantitative goodwill test is performed. The quantitative goodwill test compares the estimated fair value of each reporting unit with its carrying value (including goodwill). If the reporting unit’s estimated fair value exceeds its net book value, goodwill is not impaired. An impairment is recognized if the estimated fair value of a reporting unit is less than its net book value, in an amount not to exceed the carrying value of the reporting unit’s goodwill.
During the second quarter of 2022, recent adverse changes in business climate, including decreases in the price of Bitcoin and increased volatility of equity markets, as evidenced by declines in the market price of the Company’s securities, those of its peers, and major market indices, have reduced market multiples and increased weighted-average costs of capital, primarily driven by an increase in interest rates. Market concerns related to inflation, supply chain disruption issues and other macroeconomic factors have been some of the primary causes for these declines. Additionally, price of Bitcoin has declined significantly, notably during the second quarter of 2022. Due primarily to these factors, the Company determined that a triggering event had occurred, and therefore, performed an interim goodwill impairment assessment as of June 30, 2022. The valuation of our reporting units was determined with the assistance of an independent valuation specialist firm using a market approach. The market approach was based on the Guideline Public Company Method, which is derived from metrics of publicly traded companies or historically completed transactions of comparable businesses. The selection of comparable businesses is based on the markets in which the reporting units operate, giving consideration to risk profiles, size, geography, and diversity of products and services. Under the market approach, the Company evaluated the fair value based on trailing and forward-looking earnings and revenue multiples derived from comparable publicly traded companies with similar market position and size as the Company’s reporting units. The unobservable inputs used to measure the fair value included projected revenue growth rates, the price of Bitcoin, the global Bitcoin network hash rate, the timing of miner shipments under currently executed contracts and their subsequent deployment, and the determination of appropriate market comparison companies. The trailing-twelve-month and next-twelve-month enterprise value-to-revenue multiples assumed in the analysis ranged from approximately 0.7x to approximately 3.9x. The resulting estimated fair values of the combined reporting units were reconciled to the Company’s market capitalization, including an estimated implied control premium of approximately 30%.
The results of the quantitative test indicated the fair value of the reporting units did not exceed their carrying amounts, including goodwill. The difference between the carrying amount and the fair value of $349.1 million was recognized as a non-cash impairment charge during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.
