A summary of the carrying amount of goodwill attributable to each segment as well as the changes in such amounts are as follows:
The net goodwill balances at December 31, 2021 and September 30, 2021 included $178,732 of accumulated impairment losses. Accumulated impairment losses at December 31, 2021 and September 30, 2021 were $149,786, $5,000, and $23,946 for the SGK Brand Solutions, Memorialization, and Industrial Technologies segments, respectively.
The Company performed its annual impairment review of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 (January 1, 2021) and determined that the estimated fair values for all goodwill reporting units exceeded their carrying values, therefore no impairment charges were necessary. The estimated fair value of the Company's Graphics Imaging reporting unit, within the SGK Brand Solutions segment, exceeded the carrying value (expressed as a percentage of carrying value) by approximately 5%. If current projections are not achieved or specific valuation factors outside the Company’s control (such as discount rates and continued economic and industry impacts of COVID-19) significantly change, goodwill write-downs may be necessary in future periods.
