This excerpt taken from the TWMC 10-K filed Apr 14, 2005.
Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets, and determined that the entire recorded goodwill of $40.9 million was impaired. The impairment charge resulted from operating profits and cash flows being lower than expected during the second half of 2002.  Based on this trend, the earnings forecasts of the Company were revised. The current fair values of the Company’s reporting units were based on the present expectations for these businesses in light of sales trends and the business environment at that time, including a slowdown in the retail music industry.   A discounted cash flow model based upon the Company’s weighted average cost of capital, and other widely accepted valuation techniques, including market multiple analyses, were used to determine the fair value of the Company’s reporting units for purposes of testing goodwill impairment. Accordingly, the Company took a non-cash impairment charge to operations of $40.9 million. For additional discussion regarding the impairment charge, refer to Note 1 in Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.
