The Company evaluates long-lived assets for impairment as events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value of these assets may not be fully recoverable. Examples of such triggering events applicable to our assets include a significant decrease in the market price of a long-lived asset or asset group or a current-period operating or cash flow loss combined with a history of operating or cash flow losses or a projection or forecast that demonstrates continuing losses associated with the use of a long-lived asset or asset group.The Company performs its annual long-lived assets impairment testing in the fourth quarter of each year. In addition to the annual impairment test, the Company regularly assesses whether a triggering event has occurred which would require interim impairment testing. The Company assessed the impact that the current macroeconomic environment surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic has or is expected to have on the business, and concluded that it was not a triggering event for impairment purposes and there was no indication of impairment of long-lived assets for the three months ended March 31, 2020.
