Note 3 – Acquisitions
On April 27, 2015, the Company acquired 100 percent of privately held BLA, which is based in Brisbane, Australia. BLA is Australia's largest provider of marine products and has an extensive dealer network throughout Australia and New Zealand. The Company believes this acquisition will strengthen Brunswick's marine parts and accessories presence in this region. BLA will be managed within the Marine Engine segment.
The net cash consideration paid by the Company to acquire BLA was $8.8 million. The preliminary recording of the fair value of the assets acquired resulted in $0.8 million of identifiable intangible assets for trade names and $0.6 million of customer relationships, neither of which are deductible for tax purposes. The amounts assigned to BLA's customer relationships will be amortized over the estimated useful life of 7 years. Due to the recent timing of the acquisition, these amounts are estimates and are subject to change within the measurement period as the Company's fair value assessments are finalized.
On July 31, 2014, the Company acquired 100 percent of privately held Bell Industries Recreational Products Group, Inc. (Bell), which is based in Eagan, Minnesota. Bell is a distributor of parts and accessories to the marine, recreational vehicle and powersports markets, serving primarily the Upper Midwest of the U.S. The Company believes this acquisition will allow the Company to solidify its footprint in the Upper Midwest with locations in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin, enhance its growth of its parts and accessories businesses, expand the depth and breadth of its product portfolio and enable entry into attractive adjacent markets. Bell is managed within the Marine Engine segment.
The net cash consideration paid by the Company to acquire Bell was $11.9 million. The assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the Bell acquisition have been measured at their fair values at the acquisition date, resulting in $2.0 million of identifiable intangible assets for customer relationships and $0.9 million of goodwill, which are both deductible for tax purposes. The amounts assigned to Bell's customer relationships will be amortized over the estimated useful life of 8 years.
On June 16, 2014, the Company acquired 100 percent of privately held Whale, which is based in Bangor, Northern Ireland, and is a manufacturer of water movement and heating systems for the marine, recreational vehicle, industrial and other markets. The Company believes this acquisition will allow the Company to more fully compete across a number of parts and accessories product categories, enable entry into attractive adjacent markets and expand the global presence of the marine service, parts and accessories businesses. Whale is managed within the Marine Engine segment.
The net cash consideration paid by the Company to acquire Whale was $29.6 million, which included payments at close of $10.0 million to retire acquiree debt. The assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the Whale acquisition have been measured at their fair values at the acquisition date, resulting in $11.9 million of identifiable intangible assets, including customer relationships, trade names and patents and proprietary technology for $6.1 million, $3.7 million and $2.1 million, respectively, along with $7.9 million of goodwill, all of which are not deductible for tax purposes. The amounts assigned to Whale's customer relationships and patent and proprietary technology will be amortized over the estimated useful lives of 14 years and 5 years, respectively.
The Company considers its trade names to be indefinite-lived intangible assets.
These acquisitions were not and would not have been material to the Company's net sales, results of operations or total assets during any period presented. Accordingly, the Company's consolidated results from operations do not differ materially from historical performance as a result of these acquisitions, and therefore, pro forma results are not presented.
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).
