|Business Combination and Asset Acquisition [Abstract]|
|Business Combinations and Acquisitions||Business Combinations and Acquisitions
The Company continually evaluates potential acquisitions that strategically fit with the Company’s existing portfolio. As a result, on August 1, 2022, the Company acquired the Critical Infrastructure ("CI") business of Collins Aerospace (renamed as Secure Integrated Solutions "SIS") via an Asset Purchase Agreement. The Company paid cash of $6.6 million, but due to net working capital (NWC) settlements to be settled in the future, the GAAP consideration was $5.9 million. The SIS business joined our Technologies segment and specializes in delivering physical and cyber security systems to critical infrastructure based on a command-and-control platform that includes video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, credential/training management, biometrics, and video analytics. The Company used carrying values as of the closing date of the acquisition of CI (the "CI Acquisition") to value certain current and non-current assets and liabilities, as we determined that they represented the fair value of those items at such date.
All identifiable intangible assets acquired in the CI Acquisition were assigned to developed technology for accounting purposes.
Transaction costs related to the CI Acquisition were not material for the nine months ended September 30, 2023.
Measurement period adjustments to the previously disclosed preliminary fair value of net assets related to the CI Acquisition were recorded in 2023, resulting in a $0.9 million net increase in goodwill and corresponding $0.9 million net
increase in Other Accrued Liabilities during the three months ended March 31, 2023. The fair value of net assets recorded for the CI Acquisition was deemed final as of September 30, 2023.
All acquisitions are accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting, and the related assets acquired and liabilities assumed are recorded at fair value. The Company makes an initial allocation of the purchase price at the date of acquisition based upon its understanding of the fair value of the acquired assets and assumed liabilities. The Company obtains the information used for the purchase price allocation during due diligence and through other sources. In the months after closing, as the Company obtains additional information about the acquired assets and liabilities, including through tangible and intangible asset appraisals, and learns more about the newly acquired business, it is able to refine the estimates of fair value and more accurately allocate the purchase price. The fair values of acquired intangibles are determined based on estimates and assumptions that are deemed reasonable by the Company. Significant assumptions include the discount rates and certain assumptions that form the basis of the forecasted results of the acquired business including revenue, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), and growth rates. These assumptions are forward looking and could be affected by future economic and market conditions. Only facts and circumstances that existed as of the acquisition date are considered for subsequent adjustment. The Company will make appropriate adjustments to the purchase price allocation prior to completion of the measurement period, as required.
Purchases of acquired businesses resulted in the recognition of goodwill in the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements, which is calculated as the excess of the consideration transferred over the net assets recognized and represents the future economic benefits arising from the other assets acquired that could not be individually identified and separately recognized. The goodwill is not amortized but some portion may be deductible for income tax purposes. This goodwill recorded includes the following:
• The expected synergies and other benefits that we believe will result from combining the operations of the acquired business with the operations of Mirion;
• Any intangible assets that did not qualify for separate recognition, as well as future, yet unidentified projects and products;
• The value of the existing business as an assembled collection of net assets versus if the Company had acquired all of the net assets separately.
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).
