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, 2022 and September 30, 2022 included $261,186 of accumulated impairment losses. Accumulated impairment losses at December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2022 were $5,000, $23,946 and $232,240 for the Memorialization, Industrial Technologies and SGK Brand Solutions segments, respectively.
The Company performed its annual impairment review of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 (January 1, 2022) and determined that the estimated fair values for all goodwill reporting units exceeded their carrying values, therefore no impairment charges were necessary. The Company performed an interim assessment of its SGK Brand Solutions goodwill reporting unit as of September 1, 2022 and recorded a goodwill write-down totaling $82,454 during the fiscal 2022 fourth quarter. Subsequent to this write-down, the fair value of the SGK Brand Solutions reporting unit approximated its carrying value at September 1, 2022. If current projections are not achieved or specific valuation factors outside the Company's control (such as discount rates and continued economic and industry challenges) significantly change, additional goodwill write-downs may be necessary in future periods.
The following tables summarize the carrying amounts and related accumulated amortization for intangible assets as of December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2022, respectively.
The net change in intangible assets during the three months ended December 31, 2022 included the impact of foreign currency fluctuations during the period and additional amortization.Amortization expense on intangible assets was $10,342 and $21,546 for the three-month periods ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
