IMFT was formed in 2006 by Micron and Intel to jointly develop NAND flash memory and 3D XPoint™ technology products. IMFT was an unconsolidated variable interest entity and all costs of IMFT were passed on to Micron and Intel through sale of products or services in proportional share of ownership. IMFT depended on Micron and Intel for any additional cash needs to be provided in the form of cash calls or MDF. During the third quarter of 2018, we recognized an impairment charge of $290 million related to IMFT. As of December 29, 2018, we had a carrying value of $1.6 billion in IMFT and owned a 49% interest in the entity. Our proportional share of IMFT costs was approximately $550 million in 2019 (approximately $494 million in 2018 and $415 million in 2017).
In January 2019, Micron exercised its right to call our interest in IMFT and on October 31, 2019, Intel sold its non-controlling interest in IMFT to Micron. With the sale of our interest in IMFT and MDF repayment throughout the year, we received $1.7 billion in cash proceeds during 2019. With the sale of our interest, we reported a gain of $107 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. We will continue to purchase products manufactured by Micron at the IMFT facility under established supply agreements.
During the second quarter of 2017, we closed our divestiture of the ISecG business and retained a 49% interest in McAfee as partial consideration. Our investment is accounted for under the equity method of accounting. During 2019, we received $632 million in dividend distributions from McAfee. During 2017, we received $735 million in dividend distributions from McAfee. As of December 28, 2019, we had no accounting carrying value in McAfee.

Beijing Unisoc Technology Ltd. (Unisoc)During 2015, we invested $966 million for a minority stake of Beijing UniSpreadtrum Technology Ltd., a holding company under Tsinghua Unigroup Ltd. During 2017, we reduced our expectation of the company's future operating performance due to competitive pressures, which resulted in an impairment charge of $308 million. Beijing UniSpreadtrum Technology Ltd. and RDA Microelectronics subsequently merged and rebranded themselves as Unisoc. We account for our interest in Unisoc as a non-marketable equity security. The second phase of the investment required additional funding of approximately $500 million. However, as of October 2019, this obligation has been terminated by mutual agreement.
