Acquisitions and Divestitures [Text Block]

During 2018, we completed five acquisitions qualifying as business combinations that were not material to our operations. During 2017, in addition to the Mobileye acquisition shown below, we completed two acquisitions qualifying as business combinations. During 2016, we acquired Altera for $14.5 billion, and, in addition, completed 11 acquisitions qualifying as business combinations for aggregate consideration of $1.1 billion.
Other acquisitions completed in 2018, 2017, and 2016, both individually and in the aggregate, were not significant to our results of operations, and substantially all of the consideration, which primarily consisted of cash, was allocated to goodwill and identifiable intangible assets. For information on the assignment of goodwill to our operating segments, see "Note 12: Goodwill," and for information on the classification of intangible assets, see "Note 13: Identified Intangible Assets."
As of August 21, 2017, upon the completion of our tender offer, we acquired 97.3% of the outstanding ordinary shares of Mobileye, a global leader in the development of computer vision and machine learning, data analysis, localization, and mapping for advanced driver- assistance systems and autonomous driving. This acquisition combines Mobileye's leading computer vision expertise with Intel’s high-performance computing and connectivity expertise to create automated driving solutions from car to cloud. The combination is expected to accelerate innovation for the automotive industry and position Intel as a leading technology provider in the fast-growing market for highly and fully autonomous vehicles. The transaction also extends Intel’s strategy to invest in data-intensive market opportunities that build on our strengths in computing and connectivity from the cloud, through the network, to the device. We acquired the remaining 2.7% of Mobileye shares in April 2018.
Total consideration to acquire Mobileye was $14.9 billion (net of $366 million of cash and cash equivalents acquired), of which $14.5 billion was paid in 2017 and the remainder in 2018.
The fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the acquisition of Mobileye, by major class, were recognized as follows:

Short-term investments and marketable securities

Tangible assets

We assumed outstanding unvested Mobileye stock options and RSUs granted under two Mobileye equity plans. We will not grant additional equity awards under these two Mobileye equity plans. In connection with the acquisition, we recognized share-based compensation expense of $71 million for cash-settled awards.
Goodwill of $10.3 billion arising from the acquisition is attributed to the expected synergies and other benefits that will be generated from the combination of Intel and Mobileye. Substantially all of the goodwill recognized is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes. The goodwill recognized from the acquisition is included within "all other."
The identified intangible assets assumed in the acquisition of Mobileye were recognized as follows:

On April 3, 2017, we closed the transaction with TPG VII Manta Holdings, L.P., now known as Manta Holdings, L.P. (TPG), transferring certain assets and liabilities relating to ISecG to a newly formed, jointly owned, separate cybersecurity company called McAfee.
Total consideration received was $4.2 billion, consisting of $924 million in cash proceeds, $1.1 billion in the form of equity representing a 49% ownership interest in McAfee, and $2.2 billion in the form of promissory notes issued by McAfee and TPG. During the third quarter of 2017, McAfee and TPG repaid the $2.2 billion of promissory notes, which are included within proceeds from divestiture.
