Cellmid 2017 Annual Report
NOTES TO THE
Impairment of intangible assets
At the end of each reporting period, the Group assesses whether there is any indication that an asset may be impaired.
The assessment includes the consideration of external and internal sources of information. If such an indication exists, an
impairment test is carried out on the asset by comparing the recoverable amount of the asset, being the higher of the asset’s
fair value less costs to sell and value in use, to the asset’s carrying amount. The recoverable amounts of the asset is determined
based on reviewing the status of the research and development program, progress on its patent applications and projected
cash ﬂow calculations. These calculations require the use of assumptions, including estimating timing of cash ﬂows, product
development and availability of resources to exploit the assets.
Any excess of the asset’s carrying amount over its recoverable amount is recognised immediately in proﬁt or loss.
Where it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an individual asset, the Group estimates the recoverable
amount of the cash generating unit to which the asset belongs.
Intangible assets, have ﬁnite useful lives. The Group has determined the useful life of the intangible assets at 20 years.
The remaining useful life is 17 years.
