|Discontinued Operations and Disposal Groups [Abstract]|
Certain of our subsidiaries previously operated in the European Union ("EU"). Though operations ceased in 2009, statutory requirements made it necessary to have a continued presence in the EU for varying terms until November 2015. Profits and losses generated from the remaining assets and liabilities are accounted for as discontinued operations.
In the third quarter of 2016, our petition with the UK (United Kingdom) Companies House to strike off and dissolve the remaining subsidiary in the EU was approved. As of December 31, 2017, we recorded a net income of $1,109 due primarily to the adjustment of certain accrued liabilities.
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.
