Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets
A summary of the carrying amount of goodwill attributable to each segment as well as the changes in such amounts are as follows:
The Company performed its annual impairment review in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 and has determined that estimated fair value for all reporting units exceeded carrying value, therefore no adjustments to the carrying value of goodwill were necessary.
The following tables summarize the carrying amounts and related accumulated amortization for intangible assets as of March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively.
The net change in intangible assets during the six months ended March 31, 2017 included the impact of foreign currency fluctuations during the period, additional amortization, and additions related to the Guidance, Ungricht, VCG, RAF and Equator acquisitions.
Amortization expense on intangible assets was $5,634 and $5,190 for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. For the six-month periods ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, amortization expense was $10,575 and $10,406, respectively. Amortization expense is estimated to be $11,886 for the remainder of fiscal 2017, $21,724 in 2018, $20,677 in 2019, $19,561 in 2020 and $18,802 in 2021.
