Note C: Business Combinations
Effective February 28, 2018, the Company completed its acquisition of Lessor. Upon closing, Lessor became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Lessor is a market-leading provider of payroll and HCM software solutions headquartered in Denmark and serving clients in Northern Europe. The Company believes that the acquisition will provide additional opportunities for growth in Europe. The purchase price was $160.6 million, net of cash acquired. Goodwill in the amount of $119.2 million was recorded as a result of the acquisition, which is not tax-deductible. The goodwill recorded is provisional and subject to change, pending completion of a final valuation of Lessor. However, further changes to goodwill resulting from the acquisition are not anticipated to be material to the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Effective August 18, 2017, the Company acquired HR Outsourcing Holdings, Inc. (“HROI”) and all of its operating subsidiaries. HROI is a national PEO that provides HR solutions to small- and medium-sized businesses in more than 35 states. The acquisition expands the Company’s presence in the PEO industry. The purchase price was $75.4 million and was comprised of $42.2 million of cash plus $33.2 million issued in the form of Paychex common stock. Goodwill in the amount of $51.1 million was recorded as a result of the acquisition, which is not tax-deductible.
The financial results of both Lessor and HROI are included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements from the respective dates of acquisition. The Company concluded that these acquisitions were not material to its results of operations and financial position. Therefore, pro-forma financial information has been excluded.
