Our Company's acquisitions of businesses, equity method investments and nonmarketable securities totaled $4 million and $984 million during the three months ended April 2, 2021 and March 27, 2020, respectively. In 2020, we acquired the remaining ownership interest in fairlife, LLC (“fairlife”).
In January 2020, the Company acquired the remaining 57.5 percent ownership interest in, and now owns 100 percent of, fairlife. fairlife offers a broad portfolio of products in the value-added dairy category across North America. Upon consolidation, we recognized a gain of $902 million resulting from the remeasurement of our previously held equity interest in fairlife to fair value. The fair value of our previously held equity interest was determined using a discounted cash flow model based on Level 3 inputs. The gain was recorded in the line item other income (loss) — net in our condensed consolidated statement of income. We acquired the remaining ownership interest in exchange for $979 million of cash, net of cash acquired, and effectively settled our $306 million note receivable from fairlife at the recorded amount. Under the terms of the agreement, we are subject to making future milestone payments which are contingent on fairlife achieving certain financial targets through 2024 and, if achieved, are payable in 2021, 2023 and 2025. These milestone payments are based on agreed-upon formulas related to fairlife’s operating results, the resulting values of which are not subject to a ceiling. Under the applicable accounting guidance, we recorded a $270 million liability representing our best estimate of the fair value of this contingent consideration as of the acquisition date. The fair value of this contingent consideration was determined using a Monte Carlo valuation model based on Level 3 inputs. We are required to remeasure this liability to fair value quarterly, with any changes in the fair value recorded in income until the final milestone payment is made. Upon finalization of purchase accounting, $1.3 billion of the purchase price was allocated to the fairlife trademark and $0.8 billion was allocated to goodwill. The goodwill recognized as part of this acquisition is primarily related to synergistic value created from the opportunity for additional expansion. 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 North America operating segment.
During the three months ended April 2, 2021 and March 27, 2020, we recorded charges of $4 million and $11 million, respectively, related to the remeasurement of the contingent consideration liability to fair value in the line item other operating charges in our condensed consolidated statements of income. During the three months ended April 2, 2021, we made the first milestone payment of $100 million based on fairlife meeting its financial targets in 2020.
Proceeds from disposals of businesses, equity method investments and nonmarketable securities during the three months ended April 2, 2021 and March 27, 2020 totaled $2 million and $36 million, respectively. In 2020, we sold a portion of our ownership interest in one of our equity method investments and recognized a net gain of $18 million, which was recorded in the line item other income (loss) — net in our condensed consolidated statement of income.
