IFRS3.IE72

Footnote X: Acquisitions

On 30 June 20X2 AC acquired 15 per cent of the outstanding ordinary shares of TC.  On 30 June 2012 AC acquired 60 per cent of the outstanding ordinary shares of TC and obtained control of TC.   TC is a provider of data networking products and services in Canada and Mexico.  As a result of the acquisition, AC is expected to be the leading provider of data networking products and services in those markets.  It also expects to reduce costs through economies of scale.

The goodwill of CU 2,500 arising from the acquisition consists largely of the synergies and economies of scale expected from combining the operations of AC and TC.

None of the goodwill recognised is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes.  The following table summarises the consideration paid for TC and the amounts of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed recognised at the acquisition date, as well as the fair value at the acquisition date of the non-controlling interest in TC.
