Acquisition of Businesses
Acquisition of Certain Ally Financial International Operations
In November 2012 GM Financial entered into a definitive agreement with Ally Financial to acquire 100% of the outstanding equity interests in the top level holding companies of its automotive finance and financial services operations in Europe and Latin America and a separate agreement to acquire Ally Financial’s non-controlling equity interest in GMAC-SAIC Automotive Finance Company Limited (GMAC-SAIC), which conducts automotive finance and other financial services in China.
On April 1, 2013 GM Financial completed the acquisition of Ally Financial's European and Latin American automotive finance operations except for France, Portugal and Brazil; on June 1, 2013 it completed the acquisition of Ally Financial's automotive finance operations in France and Portugal; and on October 1, 2013 it completed the acquisition of Ally Financial's automotive finance operations in Brazil. The aggregate consideration for these acquisitions was $3.3 billion, subject to certain closing adjustments. Acquisition-related costs were insignificant. In addition GM Financial repaid loans of $1.4 billion that were assumed as part of the acquisitions. GM Financial recorded the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the acquisition dates. Certain amounts previously presented related to the acquisitions have been, and will continue to be, updated as a result of closing adjustments.
GM Financial's acquisition of Ally Financial's equity interest in GMAC-SAIC is subject to certain regulatory and other approvals and is expected to close in 2014. GM Financial expects to pay approximately $900 million to close this acquisition subject to certain closing adjustments.
The following table summarizes the aggregate consideration and the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition dates before eliminations for net intercompany receivables of approximately $300 million (dollars in millions):
Other assets, including identifiable intangible assets
Secured and unsecured debt
Identifiable net assets acquired
Goodwill resulting from the acquisitions
The fair value of finance receivables was determined using a discounted cash flow approach. The contractual cash flows were adjusted for estimated prepayments, defaults, recoveries and servicing costs and discounted using a discount rate commensurate with risks and maturity inherent in the finance contracts. The contractually required payments receivable, cash flows expected to be collected and fair value for finance receivables acquired with deteriorated credit quality at the acquisition date were $799 million, $728 million and $601 million. The contractually required payments receivable, cash flows not expected to be collected and fair value for other acquired finance receivables were $15.6 billion, $303 million and $14.5 billion. The fair value of secured and unsecured debt was determined using quoted market prices when available and a discounted cash flow approach when not available.
We recorded goodwill in the amount of $144 million for the excess of the aggregate consideration over the fair value of the individual assets acquired and liabilities assumed and such amount is primarily attributed to the value of the incremental GM Financial business expected. The recorded goodwill is subject to further adjustment resulting from the finalization of closing balance sheet audits. Valuations and assumptions pertaining to income taxes are subject to change as additional information is obtained during the measurement period. All of the goodwill was assigned to the GM Financial segment and will be assigned to reporting units, which will be determined pending completion of the remaining acquisitions. The goodwill is not tax deductible.
