  • An immediate cash payment of $20.5 million
  • A payment of 50% of the company's average annual profit for the first two years to be settled three years after the acquisition date. On 1 July 2010, the expected value of this payment (excluding any adjustment for the time value of money) was $10.2 million

The subsidiary's shares were trading at $20.40 at the date of acquisition. The parent's shares were trading at $15.20.

As a result of additional information available since the acquisition, the expected value of the payment based on profit (excluding adjustment for the time value of money) was revised to $11.4 million at 31 December 2010.

31 December 2010 $1 = 490 zets
