|Business Combinations [Abstract]|
On February 6, 2017, we entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement to acquire the assets of NetSeer, Inc. Under the terms of the agreement, we acquired substantially all of the assets of NetSeer, and assumed certain liabilities and personnel obligations, in exchange for 3,529,000 shares of our common stock. Of this amount, 529,350 shares were deposited into escrow with our counsel under the terms of an escrow agreement pending possible post-closing adjustments in the purchase price related to working capital and audited financial statement adjustments, as well as in connection with possible indemnification claims post-closing. In August 2017, these shares were released from escrow and delivered to the sellers in accordance with the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement. The operating results of this acquisition have been included in the consolidated statements of operations since the acquisition date. As a result of the business acquisition, the Company recognized goodwill in the amount of $4,013,034. The factors contributing to the recognition of the amount of goodwill are based on strategic benefits that are expected to be realized from the asset acquisition. The Company incurred approximately $350,000 in acquisition related costs, which are recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.
In accordance with ASC guidance related to business combinations, net consideration was first allocated to the fair value of assets acquired, including specifically identifiable intangible assets and liabilities assumed, with the excess being recorded as goodwill. Goodwill related to this acquisition is not deductible for tax purposes and is not amortized, but instead is subject to periodic impairment tests.
The purchase includes the assumption of gross customer accounts receivable totaling $2,292,485. The Company has collected most of these receivables and has recorded them at their fair value, the gross contractual amount. Specifically identifiable intangible assets consist of $4,360,000 and are amortized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life. Additionally, revenue totaling approximately $15.8 million from the 2017 asset acquisition is included in the consolidated statements of operations as of December 31, 2017.
The entire disclosure for a business combination (or series of individually immaterial business combinations) completed during the period, including background, timing, and recognized assets and liabilities. The disclosure may include leverage buyout transactions (as applicable).
