Business Combination and Asset Acquisition [Abstract]  
Acquisitions Acquisitions
On January 3, 2023, the Company acquired certain assets and assumed liabilities from Amerigen 7, which was accounted for as a business combination as the Company concluded that the transferred set of activities and assets related to the acquisition constituted a business. The Company paid cash consideration of approximately $0.7 million which included approximately 12 employees, customer contracts, and certain operating liabilities.
The following table summarizes the allocation of the purchase price to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed for the Amerigen 7 acquisition (in thousands):
Property and equipment $ 655 
Intangible assets 200 
Security deposits
Accrued expenses (529)
Notes payable (338)
Total identifiable assets and liabilities acquired (7)
Goodwill 652 
Total purchase consideration $ 645 
The Company engaged an independent valuation specialist to conduct a valuation analysis of the identifiable intangible assets acquired by the Company with the objective of estimating the fair value of such assets as of January 3, 2023. The valuation specialist utilized the income approach, specifically the multi-period excess earnings method, to value the existing customer relationship.

During the year ended December 31, 2023, all the acquired assets and assumed liabilities that relate to the original Amerigen7 acquisition were written off and all the key employees terminated. Due to these key qualitative changes to the Fiber Optics Group after the acquisition, the Company concluded that the goodwill balance associated with the Amerigen7 acquisition was fully impaired as there were no future expected cash flows from the acquired Amerigen7 business. The Company has no goodwill balance as of March 31, 2024.
