Acquisition of Halo
On October 15, 2019, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement to acquire Halo and the acquisition (the "Halo Acquisition") was completed on December 19, 2019 (the “Halo Acquisition Date”), for $38.2 million. The consideration was subject to customary adjustments for Halo’s net working capital, cash, and indebtedness, and consisted of a combination of cash consideration ($20.5 million), shares of the Company’s common stock ($3.9 million), Seller Notes ($15 million), and Seller Warrants ($0.3 million). The Company incurred $0.9 million in transaction costs, which are included in general and administrative expenses.
The Halo Acquisition was accounted for under the purchase method of accounting, and accordingly, the purchase price was allocated to the identifiable assets and liabilities based on their estimated fair values at the Halo Acquisition Date. The purchase price allocation is summarized as follows (in thousands):
Total purchase price $ 38,244 
Assets and Liabilities Acquired:
Property and equipment 260 
Accounts receivable 5,540 
Inventories 5,160 
Intangible assets 14,690 
Other assets 329 
Total assets 25,979 
Accounts payable 4,628 
Accrued liabilities 1,553 
Long term liability 168 
Total liabilities 6,349 
Net assets acquired 19,630 
Goodwill $ 18,614 
The excess of purchase price over the fair value amounts assigned to the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed represents goodwill from the acquisition. The Company believes the factors that contributed to goodwill include the acquisition of a talented workforce and administrative cost synergies. The Company does not expect any portion of this goodwill to be deductible for tax purposes. See "Note 9 - Intangible assets, royalties, and goodwill" for more information.
