The following represents the detail of "(Loss) earnings from discontinued operations, net of income taxes" within the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations (in thousands):
* "(Loss) earnings from discontinued operations, net of income taxes" for the periods presented in fiscal 2020 include the results of the EC&S segment for the two months ended October 31, 2019 (the divestiture date) as well as the ancillary impacts from certain retained liabilities subsequent to the divestiture. As a result of the classification of the segment as assets and liabilities held for sale for the two months ended October 31, 2019, the Company did not record amortization or depreciation expense in the results of operations in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Furthermore, the Company excluded EC&S segment employees from the fiscal 2020 bonus compensation plan, hence there are no expenses associated with the plan for that period.
Tabular disclosure of information 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.
