Long-Lived Assets

Effective April 1, 2002, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets.” SFAS No. 144 provides for a single accounting approach for measuring impairment of long-lived assets, including definite lived intangible assets, businesses accounted for as a discontinued operation, assets to be sold and assets to be disposed of other than by sale. The initial adoption of SFAS No. 144 did not have an impact on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

Under SFAS No. 144, long-lived assets, except for goodwill and indefinite lived intangible assets, are reviewed for impairment when circumstances indicate the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of the assets to future net cash flows estimated by the Company to be generated by such assets. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are recorded at the lower of carrying value or estimated net realizable value.
