During fiscal 2011, the Company acquired two software-as-a-service companies, opening up additional areas of the markets the Company serves. Effective February 8, 2011, the Company acquired SurePayroll, Inc. (“SurePayroll”), a payroll processing provider for small businesses, for $114.9 million, net of cash acquired. The acquisition of SurePayroll allows the Company entry into a new area of the online market for small businesses, and resulted in approximately $84.6 million of goodwill, which is not tax-deductible.
Effective May 3, 2011, the Company acquired ePlan Services, Inc. (“ePlan”), a provider of recordkeeping and administrative solutions to the defined contribution marketplace, for $15.2 million, net of cash acquired. The ePlan acquisition resulted in $7.5 million of goodwill, which is not tax-deductible.
Upon their respective closing dates, both entities acquired became wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company. The financial results of SurePayroll and ePlan are included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements from their respective dates of acquisition. These acquisitions are not material to the Company’s results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.
