As discussed in Note 10 - Subsequent Events, we entered into an agreement to divest Vernalis (R&D) Limited in October 2020. As a result of meeting the criteria to classify the disposal group as held for sale under generally accepted accounting principles, Vernalis (R&D) Limited was classified as held for sale as of September 30, 2020. Assets classified as held for sale are recorded at the lower of their carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell and are not depreciated or amortized. Classification of our disposal group held for sale occurs when sufficient authority to sell the disposal group has been obtained, the disposal group is available for immediate sale and its sale is probable within one year. If at any time these criteria are no longer met, the disposal group would be reclassified as held and used. We evaluate the held for sale classification during each reporting period. The disposal group did not meet the requirements for presentation as discontinued operations and are included in income from continuing operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.
We did not have any assets held for sale as of December 31, 2019. The following table presents the carrying amounts of major classes of assets and liabilities related to assets held for sale with respect to the Vernalis (R&D) Limited divestiture as of September 30, 2020.
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.
