CONDUENT INCORPORATED (NYSE:CNDT) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial ConditionItem 2.02.
Registrant is in discussions with the State of New York regarding the status and scope of the Health Enterprise platform project, which evolved to include options to not fully complete the project. Based on those discussions, Registrant believes it is probable that it will not fully complete the implementation of the platform in New York.
As a result of these developments, Registrant will record a pre-tax charge of approximately $161 million (approximately $98 million after-tax or ($0.48) per share) in its fourth-quarter 2016 results reflecting estimated asset impairments, wind down costs and other impacts from this project. The charge includes approximately $115 million for the write-off of receivables and other related assets and non-cash impairment charges, with the remainder of the charge expected to be cash outflows in future quarters for wind down and related costs.
The information contained in Item 2.02 of this Report shall not be deemed “filed” with the Commission for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liability of that section.
Item 2.06. Material Impairments.
In connection with the preparation of its financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, during the fourth quarter, Registrant performed its annual goodwill impairment test. Following the completion of the impairment test, Registrant determined that it will record a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of approximately $935 million (approximately $828 million after-tax or ($4.08) per share) in its Commercial Sector reporting unit. Subsequent to the goodwill impairment charge, the Commercial Sector reporting unit’s goodwill balance is approximately $908 million. This non-cash charge is attributable primarily to weaker than expected Commercial Sector revenues and operating profits, including in the fourth quarter of 2016. The Company does not expect to make any current or future cash expenditures as a result of this impairment.
