Significant management judgment is involved in determining these estimates and assumptions, and actual results may differ from those used in valuations. Changes in these estimates and assumptions could materially affect the determination of the fair value of a reporting unit which could trigger future impairment. The judgment in estimating the fair value of a reporting unit includes forecasts of future cash flows, which are based on managements best estimate of future revenue and operating expenses growth rates, future capital expenditures and working capital levels, as well as discount rate determined by the weighted average cost of capital approach and the selection of comparable companies operating in similar businesses. The Group also reviewed marketplace data to assess the reasonableness of assumptions such as discount rate, operating margins, and working capital levels. The fair value of the reporting unit exceeded its carrying amounts as of December 31, 2016 and 2017, and therefore goodwill related to the reporting unit was not impaired and the Group was not required to perform further testing.
Intangible assets with finite lives are carried at cost less accumulated amortization and impairment loss, if any. Intangible assets with finite lives are amortized using the straight-line method over the estimated economic lives.
Intangible assets have estimated economic lives from the date of purchase as follows:
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets Other Than Goodwill
The Group evaluates long-lived assets, such as fixed assets and purchased or acquired intangible assets with finite lives other than licensed copyrights, for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable in accordance with ASC subtopic 360-10, Property, Plant and Equipment: Overall (ASC 360-10). When such events occur, the Group assesses the recoverability of the long-lived assets based on the undiscounted future cash flows the long-lived assets are expected to generate at the lowest level of identifiable cash flows. The Group recognizes an impairment loss when the estimated undiscounted future cash flow expected to result from the use of the long-lived assets plus net proceeds expected from the eventual disposition of the long-lived assets, if any, is less than their carrying values. If the Group identifies an impairment, the Group reduces the carrying value of the long-lived assets to its estimated fair value based on a discounted cash flow approach or, when available and appropriate, to comparable market values. The Group uses estimates and judgments in its impairment tests and if different estimates or judgments had been utilized, the timing or the amount of any impairment charges could be different.
Modification of redeemable convertible preferred shares
The Group assesses whether an amendment to the terms of its redeemable convertible preferred shares is an extinguishment or a modification using the fair value model. If the change in fair value of the redeemable
