A goodwill impairment?? Huh?Posted Wednesday, April 1, 2009, at 9:21 AM
I am going to show my ignorance here but what the heck is a "goodwill impairment"? The end result does not sound too goodwill to me so.......
Here is an example: "Macy's, Inc. today announced that it has recorded an estimated pre-tax goodwill impairment charge of approximately $5.4 billion ($5.1 billion after tax or $12.07 per diluted share) in 2008."
