2016 Annual Report for Norwegian Cruiseline Holdings - 32

Asset Impairment
We review our long-lived assets, principally ships, for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an
asset may not be recoverable. Assets are grouped and evaluated at the lowest level for which there are identifiable cash flows that are largely
independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets. We consider historical performance and future estimated results in our evaluation of potential
impairment and then compare the carrying amount of the asset to the estimated future cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset. If the
carrying amount of the asset exceeds the estimated expected undiscounted future cash flows, we measure the amount of the impairment by comparing
the carrying amount of the asset to its fair value. We estimate fair value based on the best information available making whatever estimates, judgments
and projections considered necessary. The estimation of fair value is generally measured by discounting expected future cash flows at discount rates
commensurate with the risk involved.
We evaluate goodwill for impairment annually or more frequently when an event occurs or circumstances change that indicates the carrying value of a
reporting unit may not be recoverable. For our evaluation of goodwill and tradenames we use the Step 0 Test which allows us to first assess qualitative
factors to determine whether it is more likely than not (i.e., more than 50%) that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value. In order
to make this evaluation, we consider the following circumstances:


General macroeconomic conditions such as a deterioration in general economic conditions; limitations on accessing capital; fluctuations in
foreign exchange rates; or other developments in equity and credit markets;



Industry and market conditions such as a deterioration in the environment in which an entity operates; an increased competitive environment; a
decline in market-dependent multiples or metrics (in both absolute terms and relative to peers); a change in the market for an entity's products
or services; or a regulatory or political development;



Changes in cost factors that have a negative effect on earnings and cash flows;



Overall financial performance (for both actual and expected performance);



Entity and reporting unit specific events such as changes in management, key personnel, strategy, or customers; litigation; or a change in the
composition or carrying amount of net assets; and



Share price (in both absolute terms and relative to peers).

We believe our estimates and judgments with respect to our long-lived assets, principally ships, and goodwill and other indefinite-lived intangible assets
are reasonable. Nonetheless, if there was a material change in assumptions used in the determination of such fair values or if there is a material change in
the conditions or circumstances that influence such assets, we could be required to record an impairment charge. If a material change occurred, we may
conduct a quantitative assessment comparing the fair value of each reporting unit to its carrying value, including goodwill. This is called the Step I Test
which consists of a combined approach using the expected future cash flows and market multiples to determine the fair value of the reporting units.
In the third quarter of 2016, based on the performance of the Oceania Cruises reporting unit, we performed an interim goodwill impairment evaluation
consisting of a Step I Test. Based on that evaluation, we determined that there was no impairment of goodwill because its fair value exceeded its
carrying value. For our annual impairment evaluation, we performed a Step 0 Test for the Norwegian reporting unit and Step I Tests for the Regent
Seven Seas and the Oceania Cruises reporting units. Based on those evaluations, we determined that there was no impairment of goodwill because the
fair value of each reporting unit exceeded its carrying value. However, if the fair value of any reporting unit declines in future periods, its goodwill may
become impaired at that time. As of December 31, 2016, there was $523.0 million, $462.1 million and $403.8 million of goodwill for the Oceania
Cruises, Regent Seven Seas and Norwegian reporting units, respectively. As of December 31, 2016, our annual review consisting of the Step 0 and Step
I Tests supports the carrying value of these assets.
Contingencies
Periodically, we assess potential liabilities related to any lawsuits or claims brought against us or any asserted claims, including tax, legal and/or
environmental matters. Although it is typically very difficult to determine the timing and ultimate outcome of such actions, we use our best judgment to
determine if it is probable that we will incur an expense related to the settlement or final adjudication of such matters and whether a reasonable
estimation of such probable loss, if any, can be made. In assessing probable losses, we take into consideration estimates of the amount of insurance
recoveries, if any. In accordance with the guidance on accounting for contingencies, we accrue a liability when we believe a loss is probable and the
amount of loss can be reasonably estimated. Due to the inherent uncertainties related to the eventual outcome of litigation and potential insurance
recoveries, although we believe that our estimates and judgments are reasonable, it is possible that certain matters may be resolved for amounts
materially different from any estimated provisions or previous disclosures.
