3. Acquisitions

On August 6, 2019, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (Merger Agreement) by and among the Company, New Aera, Inc., a Delaware corporation, Move Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and Gregory J. Kapust, as stockholder representative. On August 9, 2019, the Company completed the acquisition of New Aera pursuant to and on the terms set forth in the Merger Agreement. In connection with the Merger Agreement, the Company also separately acquired certain intellectual property assets from Silverbow Development, LLC, an affiliate of New Aera (Silverbow). New Aera is an innovative developer and manufacturer of portable non-invasive ventilators for people suffering from various chronic lung diseases. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, all outstanding shares of capital stock of New Aera were cancelled and converted into the right to receive merger consideration with a value equal to up to $101,923 in cash in the aggregate (inclusive of payments to Silverbow) comprised of $70,523 of cash paid at closing and up to $31,400 in earnout payments if certain performance targets are achieved. Acquisition-related expenses of approximately $784 were incurred in the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 and classified within general and administrative expense. Goodwill associated with this acquisition is not expected to be deductible for income tax purposes.

Assets and liabilities of the acquired company were recorded at their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess purchase price over the fair value of net tangible assets and identifiable intangible assets acquired has been allocated to goodwill. Goodwill represents the expected synergies with the existing business, the acquired assembled workforce, and future cash flows after the acquisition. The fair value assigned to the identifiable intangible asset was determined primarily by using the excess earnings method. The key assumptions included in the excess earnings method included revenue recognized, cost of revenue and the discount rate. The fair value of the earnout liability was measured using a Monte Carlo simulation and was discounted using a rate that appropriately captures the risk associated with the obligation. The key assumption included in the simulation included revenue recognized.

The purchase accounting for this acquisition has been finalized.
