Intangible Assets

Intangible assets are stated at the lower of cost or fair value. With the exception of most trade names, intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over periods ranging from three to 21 years, representing the period over which the Company expects to receive future economic benefits from these assets. The Company assesses the carrying value of most trade names annually, or more often if events or changes in circumstances indicate there may be an impairment.

The following tables summarize the carrying amounts and related accumulated amortization for intangible assets as of December 31, 2020 and September 30, 2020:

The net change in intangible assets during the three months ended December 31, 2020 was driven primarily by normal amortization and foreign currency adjustments.

Goodwill

Goodwill is not amortized, but is subject to annual impairment tests.  Goodwill has been assigned to reporting units within the reportable segments.  The Company assesses the carrying value of goodwill annually, or more often if events or changes in circumstances indicate there may be impairment.  Impairment testing is performed at a reporting unit level. There were no goodwill impairment charges during the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.
The following table summarizes the changes in the Company’s goodwill, by reportable segment, for the three months ended December 31, 2020.
