Note 4. Acquisitions:
We periodically complete business combinations that align with our business strategy. Acquisitions are accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting, which requires, among other things, that assets acquired and liabilities assumed be recognized at fair value as of the acquisition date and that the results of operations of each acquired business be included in our consolidated statements of comprehensive income from their respective dates of acquisitions. Acquisition costs are recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses as incurred.
On April 6, 2021, the Company acquired all of the ownership interests of Asuragen, Inc. (Asuragen) for approximately $216 million, net of cash acquired, plus contingent consideration of up to $105.0 million, subject to certain revenue thresholds. The Asuragen acquisition adds a leading portfolio of best in-class molecular diagnostic and research products, including genetic screening, oncology testing kits, molecular controls, a GMP compliant manufacturing facility, and a CLIA-certified laboratory. The transaction was accounted for in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations. The goodwill recorded as a result of the acquisition represents the strategic benefits of growing the Company’ product portfolio and the expected revenue growth from increased market penetration. The goodwill is not deductible for income tax purposes. The business became part of the Diagnostics and Genomics operating segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021.
The allocation of purchase consideration related to Asuragen Inc is considered preliminary with provisional amounts primarily related to goodwill and income tax assessment of acquired net operating losses. The Company expects to finalize the allocation of purchase price within the one-year measurement-period following the acquisition. Net sales and operating loss of this business included in Bio-Techne's consolidated results of operations as of September 30, 2021 were approximately $7.6 million and $3.2 million, respectively. The preliminary estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date and at September 30, 2021 are as follows (in thousands):
Tangible assets and liabilities acquired were recorded at fair value on the date of close based on management's preliminary assessment. The purchase price allocated to developed technology, in-process research and development, and customer relationships was based on management's preliminary forecasted cash inflows and outflows and using a multiperiod excess earnings method to calculate the fair value of assets purchased. The amount recorded for developed technology is being amortized with the expense reflected in cost of goods sold in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings and Comprehensive Income. The amortization period for developed technology is estimated to be 14 years. Amortization expense related to customer relationships is reflected in selling, general and administrative expenses in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings and Comprehensive Income. The amortization period for customer relationships is estimated to be 16 years. The amount recorded for tradenames and the non-competition agreement is being amortized with the expense reflected in selling, general and administrative expenses in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings and Comprehensive Income. The amortization period for tradenames and the non-competition agreement is estimated to be 5 years and 3 years, respectively. The net deferred income tax liability represents the net amount of the estimated future impact of adjustments for costs to be recognized as intangible asset amortization, which is not deductible for income tax purposes offset by the deferred tax asset for the preliminary calculation of acquired NOLs.
