Company (1): ppb group Berhad annual report 2019
- Goodwill represents the excess of the cost of acquisition over the Group’s interest in the net fair value of the identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities of the acquiree. After initial recognition, goodwill is measured at cost less accumulated impairment losses, if any. Goodwill is not amortized and is reviewed for impairment, annually or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying values may be impaired.
- Computer software and film rights
- Measurement basis
Computer software and film rights acquired by the Group are stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and impairment losses if any. Computer software and film rights are derecognised upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected from their use or disposal. On disposal, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount is recognised in the income statement.
Amortisation is calculated to write off the depreciable amount of computer software on a straight-line basis over its estimated useful life. The principal annual rate used is 25%. Film rights are amortised based on the total revenue stream expected to be generated from the different titles and upon the exploitation of the rights. The amortisation period and the amortisation method are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at the end of each reporting period.
