This excerpt taken from the EBAY 10-K filed Feb 28, 2007.
On April 24, 2006, we acquired all of the outstanding equity securities of Tradera.com, an online auction-style marketplace in Sweden, for a total purchase price of approximately $52.3 million, including approximately $0.6 million in estimated acquisition-related expenses. We anticipate that this acquisition will allow us to expand our online auction-style marketplace in Sweden. We accounted for the acquisition as a taxable purchase transaction, and, accordingly, the purchase price has been allocated to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the basis of their respective estimated fair values on the acquisition date. The estimated useful economic lives of the identifiable intangible assets acquired in the acquisition are four years for user base and one year for developed technology and trade name. The final purchase price allocation will depend upon the completion of our integration plan in the second quarter of 2007.
