Long-lived assets with finite useful lives are reviewed for impairment when events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. Indefinite-lived assets are not subject to amortization but are tested for impairment on an annual basis as at the first day of the Corporation’s fourth quarter, or more frequently if events or circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. Impairment exists when the recoverable amount of an asset is less than its carrying value. The recoverable amount is the higher of the asset’s fair value less costs to sell (“FVLCS”) and value in use. For the purposes of assessing impairment, assets are grouped at the lowest levels for which there are separately identifiable cash flows (a cash-generating unit or “CGU”). The amount of impairment loss, if any, is the excess of the carrying value over its recoverable amount. Assets other than goodwill that have suffered impairment are reviewed for indicators of possible reversal of the impairment at each reporting date.
