2017 Acquisitions
Lease Rent Options
In February 2017, we entered into an agreement with The Rainmaker Ventures, LLC (“Rainmaker”) to acquire substantially all of the assets and liabilities that comprised Rainmaker’s multifamily revenue optimization business (“LRO”). We completed the acquisition when the transaction closed in December 2017. LRO is a revenue management solution that empowers optimized pricing for multifamily housing communities. This acquisition extended our revenue management footprint, augmented our repository of real-time lease transaction data, and increased our data science talent and capabilities. We also expect the acquisition of LRO to increase the market penetration of our YieldStar Revenue Management solution and drive revenue growth in our other asset optimization solutions.
We acquired LRO for a purchase price of $299.9 million. The purchase price consisted of a cash payment of $298.0 million, a deferred cash obligation of up to $1.6 million, which had a fair value of $1.5 million on the date of acquisition, and the assumption of certain liabilities totaling $0.4 million. Subject to any indemnification claims made, the deferred cash obligation will be released on the first anniversary of the closing date. The acquisition of LRO was financed using funds available under our Credit Facility, as defined in Note 7, and cash on hand.
The acquired identified intangible assets consisted of developed technology, client relationships, and trade names. These intangible assets were assigned estimated useful lives of seven, ten, and two years, respectively. Preliminary goodwill recognized of $203.2 million is primarily comprised of anticipated synergies from leveraging LRO’s repository of lease transaction data and data science talent with our existing platform of pricing, demand, and credit optimization tools. Goodwill and the acquired identified intangible assets are deductible for tax purposes. Accounts receivable acquired had a gross contractual value of $4.7 million at acquisition, of which $0.2 million was estimated to be uncollectible. Acquisition costs associated with this transaction, totaled $13.8 million, including $10.7 million incurred related to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act review process, and were expensed as incurred.
PEX Software
In October 2017, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of PEX Software Limited (“PEX”). PEX is a rental housing solution provider based in the United Kingdom that helps companies transform work practices and service delivery models, create and leverage competitive advantage, reduce costs, and scale businesses. PEX’s platform serves market-leading clients in the United Kingdom, European Union, and Australia. The acquisition of PEX will help us to secure a leading market position in the private rental segment of the United Kingdom’s housing market and facilitate our expansion into the European Union and other international markets.
We acquired PEX for a purchase price of $6.0 million. The purchase price consisted of a cash payment of $5.1 million at closing, net of cash acquired of $0.1 million, and a deferred cash obligation of up to $1.0 million. The deferred cash obligation is payable over a period of 24 months, and its fair value was $0.9 million at the date of acquisition. This acquisition was financed using cash on hand, which included a portion of the net offering proceeds from the issuance of the Convertible Notes.
The acquired identified intangible assets consisted of developed technology, client relationships, and trade names. These intangible assets were assigned estimated useful lives of seven, nine, and six years, respectively. Preliminary goodwill recognized of $3.2 million is chiefly attributable to the presence we gained in international markets and anticipated synergies from combining PEX’s consumer facing solutions with our platform of property management, accounting, and asset optimization solutions. Goodwill and the acquired identified intangible assets are not deductible for tax purposes. Acquisition costs associated with this transaction totaled $0.4 million and were expensed as incurred.
On-Site
In September 2017, we acquired certain discrete assets of On-Site Manager, Inc., including its ownership interest in its majority-owned subsidiary, DepositIQ & RentersIQ Insurance Agency, LLC (“DIQ”) (collectively, “On-Site”). We also acquired the remaining minority interest in DIQ. On-Site is a leasing platform for property managers and renters that assimilates leads from any source and converts them into signed leases for both the multifamily and single family housing industries. The acquisition of On-Site increased the footprint of our screening services and added incremental consumer-oriented data that benefits our data analytics solutions. Additionally, we anticipate On-Site will improve the integration of our leasing solutions into other major property management systems.
We acquired On-Site, including the minority interest in DIQ, for an aggregate purchase price of $253.4 million. The purchase price consisted of a cash payment of $225.3 million at closing, net of cash acquired of $1.7 million, and a deferred cash obligation of up to $29.6 million. The fair value of the deferred cash obligation was $28.1 million at the date of acquisition. Subject to any indemnification claims made, the deferred cash obligation will be paid over a period of 36 months, with the majority due approximately twelve months following the acquisition date. This acquisition was financed using cash on hand, which included a portion of the net offering proceeds from the issuance of the Convertible Notes.
The acquired identifiable intangible assets consisted of trade names, developed technologies, and client relationships, which will be amortized over estimated useful lives of two, five, and ten years, respectively. Preliminary goodwill recognized of $184.5 million primarily arises from anticipated synergies from leveraging our existing cost structure and integrated sales force. Goodwill and the acquired identified intangible assets arising from the acquisition of On-Site Manager are deductible for tax purposes; those arising from the acquisition of DIQ are not. Accounts receivable acquired had a gross contractual value of $5.6 million at acquisition, of which $0.9 million was estimated to be uncollectible. Acquisition costs associated with this transaction, including those related to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act review process, totaled $1.8 million and were expensed as incurred.
American Utility Management
In June 2017, RealPage acquired substantially all of the assets of American Utility Management (“AUM”), a provider of utility and energy management services for the multifamily housing industry. AUM helps maximize cost recovery, reduces energy usage and expense, and provides the tools operators of rental real estate need to manage their utilities more effectively. Additionally, AUM’s platform includes tools that enable operators to benchmark energy cost and consumption against their peers. The acquired assets will be integrated with our existing resident utility management platform and our data analytics tools.
We acquired AUM for a purchase price of $69.4 million. The purchase price consisted of a cash payment of $64.8 million at closing, net of cash acquired of $0.1 million, and a deferred cash obligation of up to $5.1 million. The fair value of the deferred cash obligation was $4.6 million at the date of acquisition and is payable over a period of four years following the date of acquisition. This acquisition was financed using cash on hand, which included a portion of the net offering proceeds from the issuance of the Convertible Notes.
The acquired identifiable intangible assets consisted of trade names, developed technology, non-compete agreements, and client relationships, which will be amortized over estimated useful lives of two, three, five, and ten years, respectively. Preliminary goodwill recognized of $45.9 million primarily arises from anticipated synergies from integrating the acquired assets with our existing resident utility management system and leveraging the energy cost and consumption benchmarking capabilities and data acquired. Goodwill and the acquired identified intangible assets are deductible for tax purposes. Accounts receivable acquired had a gross contractual value of $2.7 million at acquisition, of which $0.3 million was estimated to be uncollectible. Acquisition costs associated with this transaction totaled $0.3 million and were expensed as incurred.
Axiometrics LLC
In January 2017, we acquired substantially all of the assets of Axiometrics LLC (“Axiometrics”). Axiometrics provides its customers with timely market intelligence on apartment markets accumulated from survey and research data. Axiometrics also provides tools to analyze the data at an asset level by multiple variables such as asset class, age, and specific competitive floor plans. The acquisition of Axiometrics expanded our multifamily data analytics platform and was integrated with MPF Research, our market research database, to form Data Analytics.
We acquired Axiometrics for a purchase price of $73.8 million. The purchase price consisted of a cash payment of $66.1 million at closing; deferred cash obligations of up to $7.5 million, payable over a period of two years following the date of acquisition; and contingent cash obligations of up to $5.0 million if certain revenue targets are achieved during the twelve-month period ending December 31, 2018. The fair value of the deferred and contingent cash obligations was $6.9 million and $0.8 million, respectively, at the date of acquisition. This acquisition was financed using cash on hand.
The acquired identified intangible assets consisted of developed technology, client relationships, and trade names. These intangible assets were assigned estimated useful lives of five, ten, and three years, respectively. We recognized goodwill in the amount of $54.2 million related to this acquisition, which is primarily comprised of anticipated synergies with our existing multifamily data analytics platform. Goodwill and the acquired identified intangible assets are deductible for tax purposes. Acquisition costs associated with this transaction totaled $0.3 million and were expensed as incurred.
Purchase Price Allocation
For certain of the acquisitions in the table below, the estimated fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed are provisional and are based primarily on the information available as of the acquisition dates. We believe this information provides a reasonable basis for estimating the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, but the Company is awaiting additional information necessary to finalize those values. Therefore, the provisional measurements of fair value are subject to change, and such changes could be significant. We expect to finalize the valuation of these assets and liabilities as soon as practicable, but no later than one year from the acquisition dates. The allocation of each purchase price, including the effects of measurement period adjustments recorded as of March 31, 2018, was as follows:
