Business Combinations

Business acquisitions are accounted for under the acquisition method by assigning the purchase consideration to tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The results of businesses acquired in a business combination are included in the consolidated financial statements from the date of acquisition. Assets acquired and liabilities assumed are recorded at their fair values and the excess of the purchase consideration over the amounts assigned is recorded as goodwill. Purchased intangible assets with finite lives are amortized over their estimated useful lives. Fair value determinations require judgment and may involve the use of significant estimates and assumptions, including assumptions with respect to future cash inflows and outflows, discount rates, asset lives, and market multiples, among other items.

On May 31, 2023, the Company acquired 100% of the equity interests of Sports Connection Holdings ApS ("Sports Connection"), a Denmark-based company and a former distributor, to further broaden our reach in Europe. The total consideration was $83.7 million and consisted of an initial cash payment of $74.8 million, the settlement of pre-existing receivables of $1.7 million and a contingent consideration payable of up to $7.5 million, subject to the acquiree achieving certain 2023 financial results, and reduced by a working capital adjustment of $0.3 million. On the acquisition date, we recorded intangible assets of $54.4 million, goodwill of $7.7 million and other net assets of $21.6 million. The intangible assets have an estimated life of 7 years and are primarily related to reacquired rights. The acquisition is a non-taxable business combination and goodwill is not deductible for tax purposes.

The contingent consideration was paid in February 2024, for $7.1 million based on the acquiree achieving certain financial results in 2023.


The results of Sports Connection's operations have been included in, but are not material to, the Company's condensed consolidated results of operations since the date of acquisition. Unaudited supplemental pro forma results of operations have not been presented because the effect of the acquisition was not material to the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements. One-time acquisition related costs of $1.6 million were expensed as general and administrative expenses as incurred.


The purchase accounting for the Sports Connection acquisition remains preliminary. Although the Company uses its best estimates and assumptions to accurately value assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition date, as well as any contingent consideration, the estimates are inherently uncertain and subject to refinement. As a result, any adjustments will be recognized in the reporting period in which the amounts are determined, but not to exceed twelve months from the acquisition date.
