Junkfood Divestiture
On March 31, 2017, we completed the sale of our Junkfood business to JMJD Ventures, LLC for $27.9 million. The business sold consisted of vintage-inspired Junk Food branded and private label products sold in the United States and internationally. We received cash at closing of $25.0 million and recorded a $2.9 million note receivable with payments due between June 30, 2017, and March 30, 2018. The note receivable was amended on June 29, 2017, to revise the repayment schedule for payments to be made between September 29, 2017, and March 30, 2018.
We realized a $1.3 million pre-tax gain on the sale of the Junkfood business resulting from the proceeds of $27.9 million less the costs of assets sold and other expenses, and less direct selling costs associated with the transaction. The pre-tax gain was recorded in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations as Gain on sale of business.
The Game Divestiture
On March 2, 2015, we completed the sale of our The Game branded collegiate headwear and apparel business to David Peyser Sportswear, Inc., owner of MV Sport, Inc., for $14.9 million. The business sold consisted of The Game branded products sold nationally in college bookstores and through team dealers. This transaction further strengthened our balance sheet and enabled us to focus on areas of our business that are more strategic to our long-term goals. Our Salt Life business and corporate business, Kudzu, previously operated within To The Game, LLC (now Salt Life, LLC) were not included in the sale of the collegiate part of the business.
The sale included finished goods inventory of $6.0 million, $0.4 million in fixed assets, and $0.1 million in other assets, along with the requirement that we indemnify up to $0.3 million of legal costs associated with a particular litigation matter which was subsequently settled. The transaction did not include accounts receivable which we subsequently collected in the normal course of business, and certain undecorated apparel inventory. We incurred $0.4 million in direct selling expenses associated with the transaction. In addition, we incurred certain indirect costs associated with the transaction, including a $0.8 million devaluation of the inventory not included in the sale and $1.4 million in indirect incentive-based expenses.
The pre-tax gain on the sale of The Game assets, inclusive of the direct and indirect expenses, was $5.6 million. The transaction and associated indirect expenses were recorded in our Consolidated Statements of Operations in the year ended October 3, 2015, as follows: (i) proceeds of $14.9 million less costs of assets sold and direct selling costs resulting in a gain of $7.7 million recorded as a gain on sale of business; (ii) $1.4 million in indirect expenses recorded in our selling, general and administrative expense; and (iii) $0.8 million of indirect expenses recorded in our cost of goods sold.
