GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) Files An 8-K Material Impairments
Item 2.06Material Impairments

On January 10, 2018, GameStop Corp. concluded that a non-cash, pre-tax impairment charge in the range of $350 million to $400 million will be recorded in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ending February 3, 2018, primarily associated with acquired dealer agreement intangible assets and goodwill in its Technology Brands segment. The conclusion was made in connection with GameStop Corp.’s annual impairment testing of goodwill and intangible assets, which is not yet finalized. While the Technology Brands segment remains profitable, recent financial performance measures indicate that future sales and profitability no longer support the entire carrying value of its goodwill and intangible assets. No cash expenditures are anticipated as a result of the impairment charge.
