I need help understanding asset valuations, comparing net book value of asset worth vs discounted cash flows. If NPV<net book value then why is net book value impairment on undiscounted cash flows? If I sell at NPV of future cash flows and it's less than book value I've got a loss but not an asset value impairment?
