Our intangible assets and goodwill relate principally to our prior acquisitions of OPKO Renal, OPKO Biologics, EirGen Pharma Limited (“EirGen”) and BioReference. We amortize intangible assets with definite lives on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives. The estimated useful lives by asset class are as follows: technologies - 5-17 years, customer relationships - 7-20 years, product registrations - 7-10 years, covenants not to compete - 5 years, trade names - 5-10 years, other 9-10 years. We do not anticipate capitalizing the cost of product registration renewals, rather we expect to expense these costs, as incurred. Our goodwill is not tax deductible for income tax purposes in any jurisdiction in which we operate.
The changes in value of the intangible assets and goodwill during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were primarily due to foreign currency fluctuations between the Chilean Peso, the Euro and the Shekel against the U.S. dollar.
The following table summarizes the changes in Goodwill during the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
