Note 13: Acquisitions


During the first half of 2012, we completed eight acquisitions qualifying as business combinations in exchange for aggregate net cash consideration of $458 million. Most of the consideration was allocated to goodwill and acquisition-related developed technology intangible assets. For information on the assignment of goodwill to our operating segments for our acquisitions, see “Note 14: Goodwill,” and for information on the classification of intangible assets, see “Note 15: Identified Intangible Assets.”
