The Company adjusted the preliminary purchase price allocation in the fourth quarter of 2012 to recognize deferred tax liability on certain identifiable intangible assets, which resulted in an $8 million increase in goodwill. Substantially none of the goodwill acquired in 2012 is deductible for tax purposes.

In the fourth quarter of 2014, the FTC approved a final decision and order that became effective on October 9, 2014. Pursuant to the final order, Graco must sell the Liquid Finishing business assets within 180 days of the effective date. On October 8, 2014, the Company announced it had signed a definitive agreement to sell the Liquid Finishing business assets for $590 million cash, subject to regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions. The sale transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2015, in compliance with the FTC’s final decision and order. Graco will continue to hold the Liquid Finishing businesses separate and maintain them as viable and competitive until the sale process is complete.

The Liquid Finishing business assets are held as a cost-method investment on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Income is recognized based on dividends received from after-tax earnings of Liquid Finishing and included in other expense (income) on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings. Dividends received totaled $28 million in 2014, $28 million in 2013 and $12 million in 2012. Once the Company completes the sale of its investment, there will be no further dividends from Liquid Finishing.

The Company evaluates its cost-method investment for other-than-temporary impairment at each reporting period. As of December 26, 2014, the Company evaluated its investment in Liquid Finishing and determined that there is no impairment.

Sales and operating earnings of the Liquid Finishing businesses were as follows (unaudited, in thousands):

Net Sales

$   288,231   $   278,543   $   269,099
