NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

In thousands, except share and per share data

 

During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company performed a qualitative assessment for all indefinite-lived tradename assets other than our tradename in Ecuador, for which the Company performed a quantitative assessment. The qualitative assessments included consideration of the Company’s historical and forecasted revenues and estimated royalty rates for each tradename intangible asset.  The quantitative test for our tradename in Ecuador included estimating the fair value of the tradename based on forecasted revenues for our Ecuador theatres multiplied by an estimated market royalty rate that could be charged for the use of the tradename, with an adjustment for the present value of such royalties.  Based on the qualitative and quantitative assessments performed, the Company determined that it was not more likely than not that the fair values of tradename intangible assets were less than their carrying values as of December 31, 2016.

During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company also performed a quantitative test on its definite-lived tradename associated with the Rave theatres acquired in 2013. During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company rebranded certain of these theatres with Cinemark signage as part of recliner conversions and other renovations.  The Company estimated the fair value of the Rave tradename by applying an estimated market royalty rate that could be charged for the use of the tradename to forecasted future revenues for the theatres using the Rave tradename, with an adjustment for the present value of such royalties. As of December 31, 2016, the estimated fair value of the Rave tradename intangible asset exceeded their carrying value by more than 10%.

During the year ended 2017, the Company performed a quantitative test on all indefinite and definite-lived tradename assets.  As of December 31, 2017, the estimated fair value of the Company’s tradename assets exceeded their carrying values by more than 10%

The table below summarizes the Company’s intangible assets and the amortization method used for each type of intangible asset:

 

Intangible Asset

Amortization Method

Goodwill

Indefinite-lived

Tradename

Indefinite-lived

Vendor contracts

Straight-line method over the terms of the underlying contracts. The remaining terms of the underlying contracts range from one to three years.

Favorable/unfavorable leases

Based on the pattern in which the economic benefits are realized over the terms of the lease agreements. The remaining terms of the lease agreements range from approximately two to nineteen years.

Other intangible assets

Straight-line method over the terms of the underlying agreement or the expected useful life of the intangible asset. The remaining useful lives of these intangible assets range from one to twelve years.

 

Deferred Charges and Other Assets — Deferred charges and other assets consist of long-term prepaid rents, construction and other deposits, equipment to be placed in service, and other assets of a long-term nature. Long-term prepaid rents represent prepayments of rent on operating leases. These payments are recognized as facility lease expense over the period for which the rent was paid in advance as outlined in the lease agreements. The remaining amortization periods generally range from one to fifteen years.  

Lease Accounting — The Company evaluates each lease for classification as either a capital lease or an operating lease. The Company records the lease as a capital lease at its inception if 1) the present value of future minimum lease payments exceeds 90% of the leased property’s estimated fair value; 2) the lease term exceeds 75% of the property’s estimated useful life; 3) the lease contains a bargain purchase option; or 4) ownership transfers to the Company at the end of the lease. The Company performs this evaluation at the inception of the lease and when a modification is made to a lease. If the lease agreement calls for a scheduled rent increase during the lease term, the Company recognizes the lease expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company determines the straight-line rent expense impact of an operating lease upon inception of the lease. For some new build theatres, the landlord is responsible for constructing a theatre using guidelines and specifications agreed to by the Company and assumes substantially all of the risk of construction. For other theatres, the Company is responsible for managing construction of the theatre and the landlord contributes an agreed upon amount to the costs of construction.  If the
