Intangible Assets

Note 5– Intangible Assets

The Company incurs certain legal and related costs in connection with patent and trademark applications. If a future economic benefit is anticipated from the resulting patent or trademark or an alternate future use is available to the Company, such costs are capitalized and amortized over the expected life of the patent or trademark. The Company’s assessment of future economic benefit involves considerable management judgment. A different conclusion could result in the reduction of the carrying value of these assets.

During the quarter ended August 31, 2016, the Company determined that there were sufficient indicators to trigger an interim goodwill impairment analysis (Note 4). The Company reviews intangible assets with finite lives for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the related carrying amounts may not be recoverable. Determining whether an impairment loss occurred requires a comparison of the carrying amount to the sum of the future forecasted undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset per ASC 360, Property, Plant and Equipment. As a result of the Company’s two-step impairment analysis, an impairment of intangible assets within the PrepaCyte CB reporting segment, license agreement and customer relationships, existed and an intangible asset impairment charge of $211,267 was recorded as of August 31, 2016.


Intangible assets were as follows as of November 30, 2016 and 2015:
