|Acquisitions and Divestitures [Text Block]||
We completed five acquisitions in both 2019 and 2018, all of which qualified as business combinations. Except for the acquisition of Habana Labs, these acquisitions are not significant to our results of operations, individually or in the aggregate. The consideration for the acquisitions in 2019 and 2018 primarily consisted of cash and was allocated to goodwill and identified 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."
On December 12, 2019, we acquired Habana Labs, an Israel-based developer of programmable deep learning accelerators targeting AI workloads in the data center. Habana Labs strengthens our AI portfolio and accelerates our efforts to capitalize on the nascent, fast-growing AI silicon market opportunity. Total consideration to acquire Habana Labs was $1.7 billion. The fair values of the assets acquired relate to goodwill of $1.5 billion and acquisition-related intangible assets of $250 million, which was primarily in-process research and development. The goodwill and operating results of Habana Labs are included in our DCG operating segment.
Goodwill of $1.5 billion arising from the acquisition is attributed to the expected synergies and other benefits that will be generated from the combination of Intel and Habana Labs. Substantially all of the goodwill recognized is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes.
Smartphone Modem Business
On December 2, 2019, we completed the divestiture of the majority of our smartphone modem business, including certain employees, IP, equipment, and leases. Net assets sold were $267 million. We recognized a pre-tax gain of $690 million on the divestiture.
During the second quarter of 2018, we completed the divestiture of Wind River and recognized a pre-tax gain of $494 million.
Intel Security Group
During the second quarter of 2017, we closed the transaction with TPG VII Manta Holdings, L.P., now known as Manta Holdings, L.P., transferring certain assets and liabilities relating to ISecG to a newly formed, jointly owned, separate cybersecurity company called McAfee. As of the transaction close date, we recognized a pre-tax gain of $387 million within Interest and other, net, which is net of $507 million of currency translation adjustment losses reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) associated with currency charges on the carrying values of ISecG goodwill and identified intangible assets. In addition, we recognized a tax expense of $822 million.
The entire disclosure for a business combination (or series of individually immaterial business combinations) completed during the period, including background, timing, and recognized assets and liabilities. The disclosure may include leverage buyout transactions (as applicable).
