GOODWILL AND INTANGIBLE ASSETS
The changes in the carrying value of goodwill attributable to each reportable segment are as follows:
(1) Fair value adjustment represents the final net working capital adjustment for purchase accounting related to the Company’s prior year acquisition of Energyexcel LLP (“EEX”).
Separable intangible assets that are not deemed to have indefinite lives are amortized over their useful lives. The Company annually assesses whether a change in the life over which the Company’s assets are amortized is necessary, or more frequently if events or circumstances warrant. No changes to useful lives were made during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 or for the year ended December 31, 2014.
Acquired intangible assets other than goodwill that are subject to amortization include customer contracts, customer relationships, non-compete agreements, technology and trade names. Customer contracts are amortized ratably over the period of the acquired customer contracts ranging in periods from approximately one to five years. All other acquired intangible assets are amortized over periods ranging from approximately four to fifteen years, as defined by the nature of the respective intangible asset.
The gross carrying amount and accumulated amortization of intangible assets are as follows:
Amortization expense related to customer contracts is included in cost of revenues in the consolidated statements of income (loss). Amortization expense related to all other acquired intangible assets is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of income (loss). Amortization expense for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 related to customer contracts was $230 and $513, respectively. Amortization expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 related to customer contracts was $689 and $1,127, respectively. Amortization expense for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 related to all other acquired intangible assets was $787 and $875, respectively.
