Acquisition [Abstract]  


On August 21, 2017, the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding membership interests of Sierra Bullets, L.L.C., a manufacturer of a wide range of bullets primarily for both rifles and pistols, pursuant to the terms of the purchase and sale agreement dated August 21, 2017 (the “Purchase Agreement”).  Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company acquired Sierra for an aggregate purchase price of $79,000, plus or minus a working capital adjustment, in accordance with and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement.  During the measurement period, the Company finalized the working capital adjustment and adjusted the recorded purchase consideration and goodwill by $345.

The Company believes the acquisition of Sierra is expected to provide the Company with the following benefits:


greater combined global revenue base;


increased diversification and seasonal balance;


increased gross margins, profitability and free cash flows;


advance the development, marketing and distribution of products; and


access to increased liquidity to further acquire and grow businesses.

The following table is a reconciliation to the fair value of the purchase consideration and how the purchase consideration is allocated to assets acquired and liabilities assumed which have been estimated at their fair values.  The excess of purchase consideration over the assets acquired and liabilities assumed is recorded as goodwill.

Net Book Value Acquired







The gross amount of accounts receivable is $2,732 of which $46 is deemed to be not collectible.  The estimated fair value of inventory was recorded at expected sales price less cost to sell plus a reasonable profit margin for selling efforts.

In connection with the acquisition, the Company acquired exclusive rights to Sierra’s trade names and trademarks, customer relationships, and product technologies.  The amounts assigned to each class of intangible asset, other than goodwill acquired, and the related weighted average useful lives are as follows:











Weighted Average




Useful Life







Intangibles subject to amortization







Customer relationships






15.0 years

Product technologies






10.0 years

Trade name / trademark






10.0 years

Intangibles not subject to amortization







Trade names and trademarks












13.8 years







The weighted-average period before the next renewal of trade names and trademarks not subject to amortization is approximately 4.8 years.  The fair value of Sierra’s assembled workforce and buyer-specific synergies has been included in goodwill.  According to Revenue Ruling 99-6, the acquisition of a limited liability company is treated as a purchase of assets for tax purposes.  As such, the basis in the assets of Sierra is equal for both book and tax, which results in no initial recognition of deferred tax assets or liabilities.  Furthermore, the full amount of goodwill recorded of $17,745 is expected to be deductible for tax purposes.  No pre-existing relationships existed between Clarus and the Sellers prior to the acquisition.

On November 6, 2018, the Company purchased the assets of SKINourishment and was accounted for as a business combination.  The assets purchased were not significant to the consolidated financial statements.  Pro forma results of SKINourishment have not been presented as the results are insignificant to our consolidated financial statements.  Additionally, revenues and earnings of SKINourishment, since the acquisition date, are insignificant to our consolidated financial statements.
