2019 Acquisitions

On May 21, 2019, the Company acquired 100 percent of Freedom Boat Club, a leading boat club operator based in Florida. The acquisition expands the Company's presence and scale within the emerging and fast-growing boat club market, providing its
members access to a fleet of boats. Freedom Boat Club is included as part of the Company's Boat segment.

The net cash consideration the Company paid to acquire Freedom Boat Club was $64.1 million. The preliminary opening balance sheet included $29.2 million of identifiable intangible assets, including customer relationships, franchise agreements and trade names for $11.1 million, $4.9 million and $13.2 million, respectively, along with $26.4 million of goodwill, most of which is deductible for tax purposes. The amount assigned to Freedom Boat Club's customer relationships and franchise agreements will be amortized over their estimated useful lives of approximately 10 years and 15 years, respectively. The purchase price allocation for certain deferred tax balances is preliminary and subject to change within the allowed measurement period as the Company finalizes its fair value estimates.
