I guess if you read as many annual reports as Saj and I have in the past few months you get hungry for some excitement! So to quench this desire, I decided to skip directly to the note disclosure on goodwill and intangibles! The interesting part between these items ended up residing with the disclosure on intangibles. Here is what I found:
As you can see from these line items, the most significant portion of the intangibles is from customer relations! I don't see this very often. Approximately 67% of the total intangibles cost was from customer relations. Since the net intangible figure was $1.709M, the customer relations value represented on the balance would be $1.15M (.67 x $1.709M).
For those value investors that like to calculate a net replacement value of assets, you might be estimating a value for customer relations from items on the income statement. The problem here is that if you fail to notice and back out the customer relations amount from the intangibles, you will be overvaluing the assets of the company by $1.15M.
As I mentioned here, its always a good idea to read through the notes when valuing a company as this note again illustrates.
