Goodwill and Intangible Assets
We account for business combinations using the acquisition method of accounting. Under this method, assets and liabilities, including any remaining noncontrolling interests, are recognized at fair value at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of assets acquired, net of liabilities assumed, plus the value of any noncontrolling interests, is recognized as goodwill. We perform our annual goodwill impairment review during the fourth quarter, as of October 1, and more frequently if negative conditions or other triggering events arise. As a result of our 2017 analysis, we determined that the fair value of the reporting unit exceeded its carrying value and therefore, no goodwill impairment was identified. Should current market conditions worsen or persist for an extended period of time, an impairment of the carrying value of our goodwill could occur.
All of the Company’s goodwill and intangible assets are allocated to the International Rental Tools segment.
The change in the carrying amount of goodwill for the year ended December 31, 2017 is as follows:
Of the total amount of goodwill recognized, zero is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes.
Intangible Assets consist of the following:
