Note 7: Acquisitions
During the first six months of 2015, we completed three acquisitions qualifying as business combinations in exchange for acquisition date consideration of $571 million, most of which was cash consideration. Substantially all of the consideration was allocated to goodwill, acquisition-related developed technology, and acquisition-related customer relationships. Included in these acquisitions is our acquisition of Lantiq Semiconductor (Lantiq), intended to extend Intel's success in cable home gateways into DSL and fiber markets. We acquired Lantiq in the second quarter of 2015 for acquisition date cash consideration of $383 million, most of which was allocated to goodwill, acquisition-related developed technology, and acquisition-related customer relationships. The operating results of Lantiq are included in our Client Computing Group operating segment.
The completed acquisitions in the first six months of 2015, both individually and in the aggregate, were not significant to our results of operations. For information on goodwill by operating segment, see “Note 8: Goodwill” and for information on the classification of intangible assets, see "Note 9: Identified Intangible Assets."
Pending Acquisition of Altera Corporation
During the second quarter of 2015, we entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Altera Corporation (Altera) in an all-cash transaction expected to close within six to nine months from the date of the agreement. Upon completion of the acquisition, each outstanding share of Altera common stock and, subject to certain exceptions, each share of Altera common stock underlying vested stock option awards, restricted stock unit awards and performance-based restricted stock unit awards will be converted into the right to receive $54.00 per share in cash, without interest. As of the date we entered into the agreement, the transaction had an approximate value of $16.7 billion. This transaction is subject to certain regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions, including the approval of Altera's stockholders.
