Goodwill was recorded in conjunction with our acquisitions of Salt Life and DTG2Go businesses and represents the acquired goodwill, net of the $0.6 million cumulative impairment losses recorded in fiscal year 2011. At June 27, 2020, the Salt Life reporting unit within the Salt Life Group segment and DTG2Go reporting unit within the Delta Group segment had goodwill of $19.9 million and $18.0 million, respectively. We evaluate the carrying value of goodwill annually on the first day of our third fiscal quarter or more frequently if events or circumstances indicate that an impairment loss may have occurred. Such circumstances could include, but are not limited to, a significant adverse change in business climate, increased competition or other economic conditions.


As of March 29, 2020, we performed our annual goodwill impairment evaluation and concluded that the goodwill for the Salt Life and DTG2Go reporting units were not impaired. The goodwill impairment testing process involved the use of significant assumptions, estimates and judgments with respect to a variety of factors, including projected sales, gross margins, selling, general and administrative expenses, capital expenditures and cash flows and the selection of an appropriate discount rate, all of which are subject to inherent uncertainties and subjectivity. Our assumptions were based on annual business plans and other forecasted results as well as the selection of a discount rate, all of which we believe represent those of a market participant. We also believe these assumptions are reflective of the current macro-economic environment, including our best estimate of the impacts of the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Although we are aggressively managing our response to the pandemic, its impact on the Salt Life and DTG2Go reporting units' full year fiscal 2020 and beyond results and cash flows is uncertain. We believe that the most significant elements of uncertainty are the intensity and duration of the impact on retailers as well as the ability of our customers, supply chain, and distribution to operate with minimal disruption for the remainder of fiscal 2020 and beyond, all of which could negatively impact the reporting units' financial position, results of operations, and cash flows. Given the current macro-economic environment and the uncertainties regarding its potential impact on our business, there can be no assurance that our estimates and assumptions used in our impairment tests will prove to be accurate predictions of the future. If our assumptions regarding fair value are not achieved, it is possible that an impairment review may be triggered and goodwill or other intangible assets may be impaired in a future period.


Amortization expense for intangible assets was $0.4 million for the three-month periods ended June 27, 2020, and June 29, 2019, respectively, and $1.3 million and $1.4 million for the nine-month periods ended June 27, 2020, and June 29, 2019, respectively. Amortization expense is estimated to be approximately $1.7 million for fiscal year 2020, $1.6 million for each of fiscal years 2021 and 2022, $1.5 million for fiscal year 2023, and approximately $1.4 million for fiscal year 2024.
