The Company evaluates goodwill for impairment annually during the fourth quarter or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value of the goodwill may not be fully recoverable.  The Company evaluates goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level and has allocated goodwill to the reporting unit based on an estimate of its relative fair value. Management considers the reporting unit to be each of its nineteen regions in the U.S. and seven countries internationally with Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala considered one reporting unit (the Company does not have goodwill recorded for all of its international locations).  For the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company performed a qualitative goodwill impairment assessment on all reporting units, in accordance with ASC Topic 350-20-35.  No events or changes in circumstances occurred during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 that indicated the carrying value of goodwill might exceed its estimated fair value.
