SEC Filings - Day Three Homework Review by Michelle Leder

  1. 1. Homework review: Google & Yahoo! •  •  •  •  •  •  Both companies made big purchases during the past quarter: Google bought Waze; Yahoo bought Tumblr." The purchase price for each was just around $1 billion (Yahoo spent $990 million on Tumblr, Google spent $966 million on Waze)" In terms of accounting for those acquisitions, both companies took large chunks of those purchase prices as goodwill, an accounting placeholder. For Yahoo, it was $751 milion in goodwill; for Google it was $847 million." There were also big placeholders for intangible assets in both acquisitions: $262 million at Yahoo and $188 million at Google." Yahoo assigned an amazing $182 million valuation to Tumblr's "customer relationships.”" Similar acquisitions like this have often resulted in big write-downs months or sometimes years after the fact."
