Goodwill is calculated as the excess of consideration transferred over the net assets recognized for acquired businesses and represents future economic benefits arising from the other assets acquired that could not be individually identified and separately recognized. The Company assesses goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level annually on the first day of the fourth quarter and upon the occurrence of a triggering event or change in circumstance that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying amount.
Goodwill is assigned to reporting units at the date the goodwill is initially recorded and is reallocated as necessary based on the composition of reporting units over time. No goodwill impairment was recognized for the Successor Period or
