The following table summarizes the components of gross and net acquired intangible assets:
Other acquired intangible assets include contract-based and technology-based intangible assets.
As part of its acquisition of DoMyOwn in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 and Hopewell Nursery in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company acquired approximately $1.5 million of marketing related intangible assets, $3.3 million of customer related intangible assets and $11.2 million of other intangible assets. See Note 3 – Acquisitions.
As part of its acquisition of the remaining 55% interest in Arden Companies in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 and C&S Products in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company acquired approximately $1.9 million of marketing related intangible assets and $11.8 million of customer related intangible assets. See Note 3 – Acquisitions.
The Company evaluates long-lived assets, including amortizable and indefinite-lived intangible assets, for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. The Company evaluates indefinite-lived intangible assets on an annual basis. As a result of one of our retail customers exiting the live fish business, factors indicating the carrying value of
certain amortizable intangible assets may not be recoverable were present during the quarter ended March 30, 2019. The Company performed impairment testing on these assets, found the carrying value was not recoverable, and accordingly, recorded an impairment charge in its Pet segment of approximately $2.5 million as part of selling, general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations for the fiscal year ended September 28, 2019. Factors indicating the carrying value of the Company's amortizable intangible assets may not be recoverable were not present in fiscal 2020 or 2021, and accordingly, no impairment testing was performed on these assets.
The Company is currently amortizing its acquired intangible assets with definite lives over periods ranging from two years to 25 years; over weighted-average remaining lives of two years for marketing-related intangibles, seven years for customer-related intangibles and six years for other acquired intangibles. Amortization expense for intangibles subject to amortization was approximately $16.5 million, $14.0 million and $14.5 million, for fiscal 2021, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and is classified within operating expenses in the consolidated statements of operations. Estimated annual amortization expense related to acquired intangible assets in each of the succeeding five years is estimated to be approximately $14 million per year from fiscal 2022 through fiscal 2026.
