2. Divestiture of MW Cleaners
On February 28, 2018, we entered into a definitive agreement to divest our MW Cleaners business for approximately $18.0 million, subject to certain adjustments, and the transaction closed on March 3, 2018. During the first quarter of 2018, we received cash proceeds of $17.7 million and recorded a loss on the divestiture totaling $3.6 million, which is included within selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) in the condensed consolidated statement of earnings, and relates to our retail segment. During the second quarter of 2018, we recorded a $0.2 million unfavorable final working capital adjustment, which is included in SG&A in the condensed consolidated statement of earnings, and relates to our retail segment. During the third quarter of 2018, no amounts were recorded related to the divestiture. For the nine months ended November 3, 2018, the total loss on the divestiture of the MW Cleaners business totaled $3.8 million.
We determined that the sale of the MW Cleaners business did not represent a strategic shift and will not have a major effect on our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows. Accordingly, we have not presented the sale as a discontinued operation in the condensed consolidated financial statements.
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.
