Business Combinations and Goodwill Business Combinations and Goodwill

On July 31, 2021, the Company acquired an 80% equity interest (on a fully diluted basis) in APCMG for an aggregate purchase price of $2.0 million. As part of the transaction, the Company paid $1.0 million in cash and the remaining amount will be paid out in cash as a contingent consideration related to APCMG’s financial performance for fiscal year 2022. The contingent consideration is met if gross revenue and EBITDA targets exceed a threshold for fiscal year 2022. The Company determined the fair value of the contingent consideration using a probability-weighted model which includes significant unobservable inputs (Level 3). Specifically, the Company considered various scenarios of gross revenue and EBITDA and assigned probabilities to each such scenario in determining fair value. As of September 30, 2021, the contingent consideration is valued at $1.0 million and was included within other long-term liabilities in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

Sun Labs

On August 1, 2021, the Company acquired 49% of the aggregate issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Sun Labs for an aggregate purchase price of $4.0 million. As Sun Labs was concluded to be a VIE and the Company is the primary beneficiary, Sun Labs is consolidated by the Company. The Company is obligated to purchase the remaining equity interest within three years from the effective date. As the financing obligation is embedded in the noncontrolling interest, the noncontrolling interest is recognized in other long-term liabilities in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
The acquisitions were accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting. The fair value of the consideration for the acquired companies were allocated to acquired tangible and intangible assets and liabilities based upon their fair values. The excess of the purchase consideration over the fair value of the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired was recorded as goodwill. The determination of the fair value of assets and liabilities acquired requires the Company to make estimates and use valuation techniques when market value is not readily available. The results of operations of APCMG and Sun Labs have been included in the Company’s financial statements from the date of acquisition. Transaction costs associated with business acquisitions are expensed as they are incurred.
At the time of acquisition, the Company estimates the amount of the identifiable intangible assets based on a valuation and the facts and circumstances available at the time. The Company determines the final value of the identifiable intangible assets as soon as information is available, but not more than one year from the date of acquisition.
Goodwill is not deductible for tax purposes.
The change in the carrying value of goodwill for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was as follows (in thousands);
Balance, January 1, 2021 $ 239,053 
Acquisitions 4,300
