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. For fiscal 2018, the total loss on divestiture of MW Cleaners was $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.
