On March 1, 2014, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Westell, Inc. acquired 100% of the outstanding shares of CSI for a purchase price of $39.0 million in cash plus a $5.0 million working capital adjustment. CSI is an innovator of in-building wireless connectivity solutions for 3G/4G cellular services, enabling coverage anytime, anywhere. ClearLink, CSI’s high performance, low Passive Intermodulation Distortion (PIM) brand of in-building products are designed for distributed antenna systems and small cells. ClearLink products include Universal DAS Interface Trays (UDIT), passive DAS interface units, system components, and antennas. CSI’s portfolio also includes digital repeaters and E911 and location-based enhancement solutions for wireless networks.
The Company incurred $39,000 and $0.2 million of related acquisition costs, which were expensed as incurred and reflected in general and administrative costs in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the nine months ended December 31, 2014, and twelve months ended March 31, 2014, respectively.
The results of CSI's operations have been included in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements since the date of acquisition and are reported within the In-Building Wireless (IBW) reporting segment (See Note 5). CSI contributed $5.1 million and $22.9 million to revenue and $2.4 million and $3.3 million to operating loss in the three and nine months ended December 31, 2014, respectively.
In accordance with the acquisition method of accounting for business combinations, the Company allocated the total purchase consideration transferred to identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition date based on each element’s estimated fair value with the remaining unallocated amounts recorded as goodwill. Purchased intangibles will be amortized over their respective estimated useful lives. Goodwill represents the expected synergies and other benefits from this acquisition that relates to the Company’s market position, customer relationships and supply chain capabilities. Goodwill recorded on the CSI acquisition is not expected to be amortized or deductible for U.S. federal and state income tax purposes. In the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, the Company performed an in interim evaluation of goodwill and concluded that the $20.5 million from the CSI acquisition, which was evaluated under the IBW reporting unit, was fully impaired (See Note 3.)
The following table summarizes the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the March 1, 2014, acquisition date:
