Business Combination and Asset Acquisition [Abstract]  
Acquisitions Acquisitions
Acquisition of Proprietary Technology

The Company previously owned approximately 29% of the outstanding units in a privately held company and accounted for it as an equity method investment. On March 11, 2021, the Company entered into an intellectual property purchase agreement with this privately held company to acquire all of the proprietary technology developed by the privately held company for approximately $35.5 million. Concurrent with the intellectual property purchase agreement, the Company also entered into a redemption agreement with the same privately held company to redeem its previously held equity interest for approximately $10.0 million. The Company accounted for these two arrangements as a single unit of account. As of the acquisition date, the net cost of the proprietary technology acquired, including capitalized transaction costs, was approximately $24.5 million, which will be amortized over a five-year period on a straight-line basis. The proprietary technology has been integrated into the Envestnet Wealth Solutions segment.

Acquisition of Harvest
On April 7, 2021, pursuant to an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of March 31, 2021, between, among others, Harvest Savings & Wealth Technologies (“Harvest”), a Delaware corporation, and Bounty Merger Sub, Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), the Company completed the merger of Harvest with and into Merger Sub, with Merger Sub continuing as the surviving corporation (the “Harvest Acquisition”) and operating as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Envestnet. Harvest has been integrated into the Envestnet Wealth Solutions segment.

Harvest provides automated goals-based saving tools and wealth solutions to banks, credit unions, trust companies, and other financial institutions. The acquisition optimizes Envestnet's API-based financial wellness ecosystem, and also helps strengthen the Company's foothold to enable embedded finance, which Envestnet sees as a key driver of the future of financial services.

In connection with the Harvest Acquisition, Envestnet paid estimated consideration of $32.8 million (of which $3.3 million is being held in escrow for 18 months after the closing date), net of cash acquired, subject to certain post-closing adjustments. Envestnet funded the acquisition with cash on hand.

The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the date of acquisition:

Preliminary Estimate
(in thousands)
Total tangible assets acquired, net of cash $ 2,032 
Total liabilities assumed (596)
Identifiable intangible assets 9,500 
Goodwill 21,858 
Total net assets acquired $ 32,794 

The goodwill arising from the acquisition represents the expected synergistic benefits of the transaction, primarily related to an increase in future revenues as a result of potential cross selling opportunities, as well as enhancements to our existing technologies. The goodwill is not deductible for income tax purposes.
A summary of estimated intangible assets acquired, estimated useful lives and amortization method is as follows:

Preliminary Estimate
(in thousands)
Estimated Useful Life in Years Amortization Method
Proprietary technology $ 6,900  6 Straight-line
Customer list $ 2,600  14 Accelerated
Total intangible assets acquired $ 9,500 

The estimated fair values of certain of the assets and liabilities acquired are provisional and based on information that was available to the Company as of the acquisition date. The estimated fair values of these provisional items are based on certain valuation and other studies that are in progress and not yet at the point where there is sufficient information for a definitive measurement. The Company believes the preliminary information provides a reasonable basis for estimating the fair values of these amounts, but is waiting for additional information necessary to finalize those fair values. Therefore, provisional measurements of fair values reflected herein are subject to change and such changes could be significant. The Company expects to finalize the valuation of tangible assets acquired, liabilities assumed, identifiable intangible assets and goodwill balances and complete the acquisition accounting as soon as reasonably practicable but no later than April 7, 2022.

The results of Harvest’s operations are included in the condensed consolidated statements of operations beginning April 7, 2021 and were not considered material to the Company’s results of operations.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company’s acquisition related costs were not material, and are included in general and administration expenses. The Company may incur additional acquisition related costs over the remainder of 2021.
