ACQUISITIONS AND DIVESTITURES
During the three months ended March 29, 2019, our Company's acquisitions of businesses, equity method investments and nonmarketable securities totaled $5,201 million, which included the acquisition of Costa and the remaining equity ownership interest in C.H.I. Limited ("CHI"), a Nigerian producer of value-added dairy and juice beverages and iced tea.
During the three months ended March 30, 2018, our Company's acquisitions of businesses, equity method investments and nonmarketable securities totaled $183 million, which primarily related to the acquisition of additional interests in the Company’s franchise bottlers in the United Arab Emirates and in Oman, both of which were previously equity method investees of the Company. As a result of the additional interest acquired in the Oman bottler, we obtained a controlling interest, resulting in its consolidation.
In January 2019, the Company acquired Costa in exchange for $4.9 billion of cash, net of cash acquired. Costa is a coffee company with retail outlets in over 30 countries, the Costa Express vending system and a state-of-the-art roastery. We believe this acquisition will allow us to increase our presence in the hot beverage market as Costa has a scalable platform across multiple formats and channels, including opportunities to introduce ready-to-drink products. As of March 29, 2019, $2.4 billion of the purchase price was preliminarily allocated to the Costa trademark and $2.5 billion was preliminarily allocated to goodwill. The goodwill recognized as part of this acquisition is primarily related to synergistic value created from the opportunity for additional expansion as well as our ability to market and distribute Costa in ready-to-drink form throughout our bottling system. It also includes certain other intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition, such as an assembled workforce. The goodwill is not tax deductible and has been assigned to the Global Ventures operating segment. The preliminary allocation of the purchase price is subject to refinement when valuations are finalized. As of March 29, 2019, the valuations that have not been finalized primarily relate to intangible assets, operating lease ROU assets and operating lease liabilities and certain fixed assets. The final purchase price allocation will be completed as soon as possible, but no later than the first quarter of 2020.
In January 2019, the Company acquired the remaining 60 percent interest in CHI in exchange for $260 million of cash, net of cash acquired, under the terms of the agreement for our original investment in CHI. Upon consolidation, we recognized a net charge of $121 million, which included the remeasurement of our previously held equity interest in CHI to fair value and the reversal of the related cumulative translation adjustments. The fair value of our previously held equity investment was determined using a discounted cash flow model based on Level 3 inputs. The net charge was recorded in the line item other income (loss) — net in our condensed consolidated statement of income.
During the three months ended March 29, 2019, proceeds from disposals of businesses, equity method investments and nonmarketable securities totaled $261 million, which primarily related to the sale of a portion of our equity method investment in Embotelladora Andina S.A. ("Andina"). We recognized a gain of $39 million as a result of the sale, which was recorded in the line item other income (loss) — net in our condensed consolidated statement of income. We continue to account for our remaining interest in Andina as an equity method investment as a result of our representation on Andina's Board of Directors and other governance rights.
During the three months ended March 30, 2018, proceeds from disposals of businesses, equity method investments and nonmarketable securities totaled $3 million, which related to the proceeds from the refranchising of our U.S. Virgin Islands bottling territories.
North America Refranchising — United States
In conjunction with implementing a new beverage partnership model in North America, in 2018 the Company completed the refranchising of all of our bottling territories in the United States that were previously managed by Coca-Cola Refreshments
("CCR") to certain of our unconsolidated bottling partners. We recognized net charges of $4 million and $2 million during the three months ended March 29, 2019 and March 30, 2018, respectively. These net charges were included in the line item other income (loss) — net in our condensed consolidated statements of income, and were primarily related to post-closing adjustments as contemplated by the related agreements.
During the three months ended March 29, 2019 and March 30, 2018, the Company recorded charges of $4 million and $19 million, respectively, primarily related to payments made to certain of our unconsolidated bottling partners in order to convert the bottling agreements for their legacy territories and any previously refranchised territories to a single form of comprehensive beverage agreement ("CBA") with additional requirements. The additional requirements generally include a binding national governance model, mandatory incidence pricing and additional core performance requirements, among other things. As a result of these conversions, the legacy territories and any previously refranchised territories for each of the related bottling partners will be governed under similar CBAs, which will provide consistency across each such bottler's respective territory, as well as consistency with other U.S. bottlers that have been granted or converted to this form of CBA. The charges related to these payments were included in the line item other income (loss) — net in our condensed consolidated statements of income.
Refer to Note 17 for the impact these items had on our operating segments and Corporate.
We present the financial position and results of operations of Coca-Cola Beverages Africa Proprietary Limited ("CCBA") as discontinued operations in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements because CCBA met the criteria to be classified as held for sale upon acquisition. Since CCBA met the criteria to be classified as held for sale, we were required to record their assets and liabilities at the lower of carrying value or fair value less any costs to sell and present the related assets and liabilities as separate line items in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. We anticipate that we will divest a portion of our ownership interest in 2019, which will result in the Company no longer having a controlling interest in CCBA.
The following table presents information related to the major classes of assets and liabilities of CCBA that were classified as held for sale — discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated balance sheets (in millions):
1 Includes $10 million of operating lease ROU assets as a result of our adoption of ASC 842.
2 Includes $4 million of the current portion of operating lease liabilities as a result of our adoption of ASC 842.
3 Includes $6 million of the noncurrent portion of operating lease liabilities as a result of our adoption of ASC 842.
Schedule of a material business combination (or a series of individually immaterial business combinations) as well as the acquisition of assets such as trademarks that were announced or completed during the period. This schedule also includes divestitures and significant events or transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date.
