3. SHIPYARD TRANSACTION AND DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS
Transaction Summary – On April 19, 2021 (“Transaction Date”), we entered into a definitive agreement and sold our Shipyard Division operating assets and certain construction contracts (“Shipyard Transaction”) to Bollinger Houma Shipyards, L.L.C. and Bollinger Shipyards Lockport, L.L.C. (collectively, “Bollinger”) for approximately $28.6 million (“Transaction Price”) ($26.1 million, net of transaction and other costs). We received $27.7 million of the Transaction Price during 2021 ($26.4 million in the second quarter 2021 and $1.3 million in fourth quarter 2021) and the remaining $0.9 million was received in the second quarter 2022, subsequent to Bollinger’s collection of certain customer payments associated with the Divested Shipyard Contracts (defined below). We also received $7.8 million during the second quarter 2021 associated with changes in working capital for the Divested Shipyard Contracts from December 31, 2020 through the Transaction Date (“Working Capital True-Up”).
Included in the Shipyard Transaction were the Shipyard Division’s:
Bollinger offered employment to most of the employees of our Shipyard Division associated with the Divested Shipyard Contracts.
Excluded from the Shipyard Transaction were the Shipyard Division’s:
We retained those employees of our Shipyard Division associated with the Active Retained Shipyard Contracts.
Impairment and Transaction Loss – During the first quarter 2021, events and changes in circumstances indicated that the carrying amount of our Shipyard Division’s long-lived assets may not be recoverable. These changes in circumstances were primarily attributable to a reassessment of our asset groups within our Shipyard Division as well as revisions to our probability assessment of net future cash flows of the applicable asset group based on the likelihood, that existed as of March 31, 2021, of the Shipyard Transaction occurring. Based on these assessments, we determined that an impairment of our Shipyard Division’s property, plant and equipment had occurred during the first quarter 2021. We measured the impairment by comparing the carrying amount of the applicable asset group at March 31, 2021 to an estimate of its fair value (which represents a Level 3 fair value measurement), resulting in an impairment charge of $22.8 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. We based our fair value estimate on the Transaction Price, inclusive of an estimate of the Working Capital True-Up, associated with the Shipyard Transaction. In addition, we incurred transaction and other costs of $2.6 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 associated with the Shipyard Transaction.
Other – At September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the net operating liabilities on our Balance Sheet associated with the Retained Shipyard Contracts and other retained Shipyard Division operations totaled $1.2 million and $8.7 million, respectively. We are completing construction of the Active Retained Shipyard Contracts within our Houma Facilities and are winding down our Shipyard Division operations, which is anticipated to occur by the first quarter 2023 (previously the fourth quarter 2022, but delayed as further discussed in Note 2). The wind down of our Shipyard Division operations does not include our contracts for the construction of the MPSVs that are subject to dispute. See Note 7 for further discussion of our MPSV dispute.
The Shipyard Transaction (which included, among other things, our owned Shipyard Facility, Divested Shipyard Contracts and drydocks), and the fourth quarter 2020 closures of our leased Lake Charles Facility and Jennings Facility, represented the disposal and closure of a substantial portion of our Shipyard Division operations and the culmination of a strategic shift that will have a major effect on our ongoing operations and financial results. Therefore, we determined the assets, liabilities and operations associated with the Shipyard Transaction, and associated with the previously closed Shipyard Division facilities, to be discontinued operations in the second quarter 2021. Accordingly, such operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 have been classified as discontinued operations on our Statement of Operations. We had no material operating results of discontinued operations for the three or nine months ended September 30, 2022 or the three months ended September 30, 2021, and no material assets and liabilities of discontinued operations at September 30, 2022 or December 31, 2021. The assets, liabilities and operating results attributable to the Retained Shipyard Contracts and remaining assets and liabilities of our Shipyard Division operations that were excluded from the Shipyard Transaction, and are not associated with the previously closed facilities, represent our Shipyard Division and are classified as continuing operations on our Balance Sheet and Statement of Operations. Discontinued operations are presented separately from continuing operations on our Balance Sheet and Statement of Operations; however, they are not presented separately on our Statement of Cash Flows.
A summary of the operating results and cash flows from discontinued operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, is as follows (in thousands):
The entire disclosure related to a disposal group. Includes, but is not limited to, a discontinued operation, disposal classified as held-for-sale or disposed of by means other than sale or disposal of an individually significant component.
