Note 2 - Acquisitions
Acquisition of Halo
On October 15, 2019, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) to acquire Halo and the acquisition (the “Halo Acquisition”) was completed on December 19, 2019 (“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 ($15.0 million), and seller warrants ($0.3 million).
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 determination of the preliminary purchase price allocation to specific assets acquired and liabilities assumed is incomplete for Halo. The preliminary purchase price allocation may change in future periods as the fair value estimates of assets and liabilities and the valuation of the related tax assets and liabilities are completed. The preliminary purchase price allocation is summarized as follows:
The intangible assets acquired relate to customer relationships and trade name. Acquired customer relationships are finite-lived intangible assets and are amortized over their estimated life of 7 years using the straight-line method, which approximates the customer attrition rate, reflecting the pattern of economic benefits associated with these assets.
All of Halo’s products and services are sold under the “Halo” trade name, and each major product is identified by this trade name. The trade name is a finite-lived intangible asset and is being amortized over its estimated life of 15 years using the straight-line method, which reflects the pattern of economic benefits associated with this asset.
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.
