Goodwill
On October 3, 2014, the Company completed the acquisition of Kulu Valley, Ltd. and recognized $8.8 million of goodwill and $6.7 million of intangible assets. The goodwill balance of $8.1 million at December 31, 2015 reflects the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations since the acquisition date. See Note 2 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information on the acquisition of Kulu Valley. The gross carrying amount of goodwill related to the 2011 acquisition of Qumu, Inc. of $22.2 million was fully impaired in 2012.
During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company’s stock price traded at levels which caused the Company’s enterprise value, excluding any control premium, to approximate its book value, resulting in increased risk of a potential impairment of goodwill. As of December 31, 2015, the Company’s market capitalization, without a control premium, was less than its book value suggesting a possible goodwill impairment. The Company engaged a third party valuation firm to assist the Company with its goodwill impairment analysis. Based on the analysis, the Company determined its enterprise value using a discounted cash flow analysis and a comparable public company analysis, giving both equal weight, was greater than the Company’s book value by 14%. As a result, the Company concluded there was no goodwill impairment. While not a factor used for the December 31, 2015 goodwill impairment analysis, the Company's market capitalization increased to $48.7 million as of March 14, 2016 which was in excess of its book value at December 31, 2015 by 58%. Declines in the Company’s market capitalization could require the Company to record goodwill and other impairment charges. While a goodwill impairment charge is a non-cash charge, it would have a negative impact on the Company's results of operations.
