Acquisitions Acquisitions
Omni Energy, LLC
    In July 2019, the Company acquired a specified customer pipeline and assembled workforce from Omni Energy, LLC (“Omni”), an existing solar integrator with multi-family solar project origination and development capabilities.
     The purchase consideration for the assets acquired was approximately $23.5 million, consisting of $2.7 million in cash upfront and $20.8 million representing the fair value of contingent consideration based upon new solar system installations through 2022. The Company estimated the fair value of the contingent consideration at the acquisition date using a probability-weighted discounted cash flow methodology. The estimated range of outcomes (undiscounted) was from $17.7 million to $28.9 million. The total fair value of the assets acquired of $23.5 million is comprised of an intangible asset related to customer relationships of $14.2 million with estimated useful life of five years, and goodwill of $9.3 million. Customer relationships were valued with level 3 inputs. The Company reassesses the valuation assumptions each reporting period, with any changes in the fair value accounted for in sales and marketing expense within the consolidated statements of operations. The fair value of the contingent consideration as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 was $4.7 million and $11.8 million, respectively.
The fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed was finalized during 2020 and resulted in no additional adjustments.
     Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. Goodwill recorded is primarily attributable to the acquired assembled workforce and synergies achieved through the elimination of redundant costs.
There was no revenue contributed from the acquired business to the Company, as measured from the date of the acquisition through December 31, 2019. The portion of the total expenses and net income associated with the acquired business was not separately identifiable due to the integration with the Company’s operations. Due to the nature of the acquisition, the operations acquired and the related unaudited pro forma information are immaterial.
Vivint Solar, Inc.
On October 8, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of Vivint Solar, a leading full-service residential solar provider in the United States, at an estimated purchase price of $5.0 billion, pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of July 6, 2020, by and among the Company, Vivint Solar and Viking Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and direct wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Merger Sub merged with and into Vivint Solar, with Vivint Solar continuing as the surviving corporation (the “Merger”). As a result of the Merger, Vivint Solar became a direct wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.
The calculation of the purchase price is as follows (in thousands, except for share, per share and ratio amounts):
Vivint Solar outstanding common stock at October 8, 2020 126,313,816 
Exchange ratio 0.55 
Number of Sunrun shares issued 69,472,599 
Per share price of Sunrun common stock at October 8, 2020 $ 70.54 
Fair value of Sunrun common stock issued 4,900,597 
Fair value of replacement Sunrun stock options and restricted stock units 136,919 
Purchase price $ 5,037,516 
Transaction costs of $25.5 million were expensed as incurred in general and administrative expense in the Company's consolidated statements of operations.
The results of Vivint Solar have been included in the Company's consolidated financial statements since the acquisition date. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the revenue and net loss from Vivint Solar recognized in the Company's consolidated statement of operations were $81.3 million and $167.7 million, respectively.
Fair values assigned to assets acquired and liabilities assumed are based on a complex series of judgments about future events and uncertainties and rely heavily on estimates and assumptions. The judgments used to determine the estimated fair value assigned to each class of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, as well as asset lives and the expected future cash flows and related discount rates, can materially impact the Company's results of operations. Specifically, the Company used discounted cash flow models to value the solar energy systems and the noncontrolling interests in subsidiaries. Inputs used for the models were Level 3 inputs and included the amount of cash flows, the expected period of the cash flows and the discount rates. The fair value of the assumed debt instruments was based on rates offered for debt with similar maturities and terms on October 8, 2020 and its fair value fell under the Level 2 hierarchy.
As the Company finalizes the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, additional purchase price adjustments may be recorded during the measurement period (a period not to exceed 12 months) in 2021. The Company is in the process of finalizing its third-party valuations of solar energy systems; thus, the provisional measurements of solar energy systems, goodwill and deferred income tax assets are subject to change as additional information is received and certain tax returns are finalized.
The following table sets forth the purchase accounting for Vivint Solar’s identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed, with the excess recorded as goodwill (in thousands):
