Reduction in Value of Long-Lived Assets



Long-lived assets, such as property, plant and equipment and purchased intangibles subject to amortization are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable.  Recoverability of assets to be held and used is assessed by a comparison of the carrying amount of such assets to their fair value calculated, in part, by the estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the assets.  Cash flow estimates are based upon, among other things, historical results adjusted to reflect the best estimate of future market rates, utilization levels, and operating performance.  Estimates of cash flows may differ from actual cash flows due to, among other things, changes in economic conditions or changes in an asset’s operating performance.  The Company’s assets are grouped by line of business or division for the impairment testing, which represent the lowest level of identifiable cash flows.  If the asset grouping’s fair value is less than the carrying amount of those items, impairment losses are recorded in the amount by which the carrying amount of such assets exceeds the fair value.  The estimate of fair value represents the Company’s best estimate based on industry trends and reference to market transactions and is subject to variability. 



During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company recorded $0 and $105.9 million, respectively, in connection with the reduction in value of its long-lived assets.  The reduction in value of assets was comprised of $2.9 million related to equipment and $45.9 million related to intangibles in the fluid management business in the Onshore Completion and Workover Services segment and $12.4 million related to equipment and $21.0 million related to intangibles, primarily relating to the cementing business in the Production Services segment.  In addition, the Company recorded $23.7 million related to the reduction in carrying values of certain accommodation units included in the Drilling Products and Services segment.  The reduction in value of assets recorded during the second quarter of 2016 was primarily driven by the decline in demand for these services.



During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company recorded $15.6 million and $166.0 million in connection with the reduction in value of its long-lived assets.  The reduction in value of assets was comprised of $78.5 million related to equipment and $58.8 million related to intangibles in the coiled tubing and pressure control tools businesses in the Production Services segment and $12.9 million related to mechanical drilling rigs included in the Onshore Completion and Workover Services segment.  In addition, the Company recorded $15.8 million related to reduction in carrying values of certain international accommodation units included in the Drilling Products and Services segment.
