NOTE 6. GOODWILL AND OTHER INTANGIBLE ASSETS
There was a decrease in goodwill related to the Black Diamond segment during the year ended December 31, 2015 due to the impairment of goodwill. During the fourth quarter of the year ended December 31, 2015, there was a decrease in the Company’s market capitalization which was determined to be a triggering event for potential goodwill impairment. Accordingly, the Company performed a goodwill impairment analysis. The Company utilized the market capitalization, plus a reasonable control premium to estimate the fair value. Our total stockholders’ equity exceeded the estimated fair value by $32,754. The failure of step one of the goodwill impairment test triggered a step two impairment test. As a result of step two of the impairment test, the Company determined the implied fair value of goodwill and concluded that the carrying value of goodwill exceeded its implied fair value as of December 31, 2015. Accordingly, an impairment charge of $29,507, which represents a full impairment charge, was recognized in the fourth quarter of 2015. As of December 31, 2016, there was no goodwill recorded.
There was an increase in goodwill during the year ended December 31, 2017 to $17,745, due to the Company’s acquisition of Sierra on August 21, 2017. Based on the results of the Company’s annual impairment tests completed during the fourth quarter, the Company determined that goodwill was not impaired. The following table summarizes the changes in goodwill:
Indefinite Lived Intangible Assets
The Company owns certain tradenames and trademarks which provide Black Diamond Equipment, PIEPS and Sierra with the exclusive and perpetual rights to manufacture and sell their respective products. Tradenames and trademarks are not amortized, but reviewed annually for impairment or upon the existence of a triggering event. There was an increase in tradenames and trademarks during the year ended December 31, 2017 due to the Company’s acquisition of Sierra and the impact of foreign currency exchange rates. Based on the results of the Company’s annual impairment tests, the Company determined that indefinite lived intangible assets were not impaired. The following table summarizes the changes in indefinite lived intangible assets:
Other Intangible Assets, net
Intangible assets such as certain customer relationships, core technologies, tradenames and product technologies are amortizable over their estimated useful lives. There was an increase in gross other intangible assets subject to amortization during the year ended December 31, 2017 due to the acquisition of Sierra and the impact of foreign currency exchange rates. The following table summarizes the changes in gross other intangible assets:
