Note 3. Acquisition
On September 28, 2008, we acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of Athleta, a womens sports and active apparel company based in Petaluma, California, for an aggregate purchase price of $148 million in cash, including transaction costs. The acquisition will allow us to enhance our presence in the growing womens active apparel sector in the United States. The results of operations for Athleta are included in the Consolidated Statements of Earnings beginning September 29, 2008. The impact of the acquisition on the Companys results of operations, as if the acquisition had been completed as of the beginning of the periods presented, is not significant.
The purchase price was allocated as follows as of September 28, 2008:
All of the assets above have been allocated to the Direct reportable segment.
None of the goodwill acquired is deductible for tax purposes. During fiscal 2008, there were no material changes in the carrying amount of goodwill or trade name. Intangible assets subject to amortization, consisting primarily of customer relationships, are being amortized over a weighted-average amortization period of four years and are as follows:
Amortization expense for intangible assets subject to amortization for fiscal 2008 was $2 million and is classified as operating expenses in the Consolidated Statement of Earnings.
As of January 31, 2009, future amortization expense associated with intangible assets subject to amortization for each of the five succeeding fiscal years is as follows:

Note 4. Discontinued Operation of Forth & Towne
In February 2007, we announced our decision to close our Forth & Towne store locations. The decision resulted from a thorough analysis of the concept, which revealed that it was not demonstrating enough potential to deliver an acceptable long-term return on investment. All of the 19 Forth & Towne stores were closed by the end of June 2007 and we reduced our workforce by approximately 550 employees in fiscal 2007. The results of Forth & Towne, net of income tax benefit, have been presented as a discontinued operation in the Consolidated Statements of Earnings for all periods presented and are as follows:
For fiscal 2007, the loss from the discontinued operation of Forth & Towne included the following charges on a pre-tax basis: $29 million related to the impairment of long-lived assets, $6 million of lease settlement charges, $5 million of employee severance, $4 million of administrative and other costs, and $2 million of net sublease losses.
Future cash payments for Forth & Towne primarily relate to obligations associated with certain leases and these payments will be made over the various remaining lease terms through 2017. Based on our current assumptions as of January 31, 2009, we expect our lease payments, net of sublease income, to be immaterial.
