'In a significant quarter for the company, I am proud to report Overstock delivered both growth and profitability in the second quarter of 2021 as we lapped the start of the pandemic,' said Overstock CEO Jonathan Johnson. 'Our strong and consistent results stem from foundational operational improvements in the business, a disciplined strategy, and intense focus. The furniture and home furnishings market is large and growing. We expect this market to benefit from strong and sustained demand, and to continue to migrate online over time. Overstock remains well positioned to capture market share and sustain its profitable trajectory through the remainder of 2021 and beyond.'
'In addition to our solid operating results, Overstock recorded two significant accounting items in the second quarter,' continued Johnson. 'First, based on our consistent profitability and current go-forward outlook, we have released $47 million of our tax valuation allowance. This release illustrates confidence in our ability to continue to deliver sustainable, profitable market share growth. Second, in conjunction with the closing of the transaction with Pelion Venture Partners, we recognized a $228 million net gain, included in discontinued operations. It is great to have the Pelion transaction closed and the Pelion team focused on the Medici Ventures Fund companies.'

Partnership with Pelion Ventures Partners
On April 23, 2021, we entered into a Limited Partnership Agreement with Pelion MV GP, L.L.C. ('Pelion'), in which Pelion became the sole general partner, holding a 1% equity interest in the partnership, and Overstock became a limited partner, holding a 99% equity interest in the partnership. Commensurate with closing, we recognized a $228 million gain during the quarter, net of income taxes, as part of income from discontinued operations, as we recorded the fair value of our retained equity method investments in the partnership and tZERO. Additionally, our retained equity interest in the limited partnership and tZERO were recognized as equity method investments on our consolidated balance sheets in the amount of $330 million.
Financial Reporting Presentation in Accordance with the Pelion Transaction
Medici Ventures' blockchain businesses, including tZERO, met the criteria to be reported as held for sale and discontinued operations as of March 31, 2021, due to their anticipated deconsolidation. As a result of closing the transaction during the second quarter of 2021, these businesses' operating results for the periods prior to deconsolidation have been reflected in our consolidated statements of income as discontinued operations. Additionally, the related assets and liabilities of these businesses associated with the prior periods are classified as discontinued operations in our consolidated balance sheets. As a result of closing this transaction, Overstock has reorganized its remaining businesses into a single reportable operating segment, Retail. Corporate-related overhead costs are included in Retail continuing operations.
Release of Tax Valuation Allowance
Each quarter we assess the recoverability of our deferred tax assets. In our assessment for the period ended June 30, 2021, we concluded it is more likely than not that our deferred tax assets related to United States federal income and all states with the exception of Utah will be realizable, therefore, we released approximately $47 million of our valuation allowance. We still maintain a valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets for capital losses and the state of Utah.
