The Scruggs Company
On May 15, 2018, the Company executed a stock purchase agreement (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”) to complete the acquisition of 100% of the common shares and voting interests of The Scruggs Company (“Scruggs”), a privately-owned infrastructure and road construction company headquartered in Hahira, Georgia that operates three hot mix asphalt plants, three aggregate mines and one industrial plant (the “Scruggs Acquisition”). The Scruggs Acquisition complemented the Company’s vertically integrated southeastern United States operations, providing new bidding areas in the expanding Georgia market. The Company funded the purchase price with cash on hand plus an additional $22.0 million borrowed under its existing Compass Term Loan as described in Note 12 - Debt. The purchase price of $51.3 million, excluding cash acquired of $4.7 million, was paid in cash at closing.
This acquisition was accounted for as a business combination in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations.
Management completed the purchase price allocation for this acquisition during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018. Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed were recorded at their estimated fair values based on the methodology described under "Fair Value Measurements" in Note 3 - Significant Accounting Policies. The fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, and the estimated useful lives of intangible assets acquired, are as follows (in thousands):
(1) Other current assets excludes cash acquired
(2) The estimated useful life of the backlog intangible asset is 17 months
(3) The estimated useful life of the customer relationship intangible is 8 years
The amount of the purchase price exceeding the net fair value of identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed was recorded as goodwill. Under the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement, the parties made a Section 338(h)(10) election under the Internal Revenue Code. Accordingly, goodwill, the backlog intangible and customer relationship intangible assets allocated to the purchase price and the step-up to fair value of property, plant and equipment reflected in the acquisition date balance sheet are deductible by the Company for income tax purposes. Goodwill primarily represents the assembled work force and synergies expected to result from the acquisition. Management has determined that Scruggs represents a new reporting unit for purposes of assessing potential impairment of goodwill, and has allocated all goodwill recognized in connection with the acquisition to that new reporting unit. Scruggs represents the Company’s fifth platform operating company and functions one level below the Company’s single operating segment, along with its other platform operating companies each representing reporting units.
The Consolidated Statement of Income for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018 includes $35.8 million of revenue and $3.5 million of net income attributable to operations of Scruggs since the acquisition date of May 15, 2018. The Company recorded certain costs to effect the Scruggs Acquisition as they were incurred, which are reflected as general and administrative expenses on the Consolidated Statement of Income in the amount of $0.2 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018. The following presents pro forma revenues and net income as though the Scruggs Acquisition had occurred on October 1, 2016 (unaudited, in thousands):

This acquisition was accounted for as a business combination in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations. Consideration paid to consummate the acquisition consisted of $10.8 million cash paid on the closing date. The Company also entered into a purchase commitment with the seller to purchase $3.1 million of inventory over the two years following the acquisition. Of that amount, $2.3 million had been purchased as of September 30, 2018.
Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed were recorded at their estimated fair values based on the methodology described under "Fair Value Measurements" in Note 3 - Significant Accounting Policies. The amount of consideration paid in excess of the fair value of net assets acquired is recorded as goodwill, which is deductible for income tax purposes. The following summarizes the fair value of identifiable assets acquired (in thousands):
