Subsequent to September 30, 2020, a subsidiary of the Company acquired the operations of three asphalt and paving companies in North Carolina. The acquired businesses collectively added eleven hot-mix asphalt plants in North Carolina, providing the Company with access to additional markets and expanding its footprint in the state. The acquisitions will be accounted for as business combinations in accordance with ASC 805. The aggregate purchase price of $57.4 million (exclusive of reimbursement to the respective sellers for inventory assets acquired) was paid from cash on hand at closing.
In each case, the provisional allocation of the purchase price to assets acquired and liabilities assumed, based on their estimated fair values at the acquisition date, was determined in accordance with the methodology described under Fair Value Measurements above in Note 2 - Significant Accounting Policies. The amount of the purchase price exceeding the preliminary net fair value of identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed is expected to be recorded as goodwill in the aggregate amount of $21.1 million, which is deductible for income tax purposes. Goodwill primarily represents the assembled workforce and synergies expected to result from the acquisition. Upon finalizing the accounting for this transaction, management expects to ascribe value to other identifiable intangible assets, including customer relationships and customer backlog, which will reduce the preliminary amount allocated to goodwill.
