On March 31, 2005, the Company acquired 100 percent of the stock of TELDIX GmbH (TELDIX), a leading provider of military aviation electronics products and services, based in Heidelberg, Germany. TELDIX supplies a broad portfolio of complex military aircraft computer products, advanced mechanical space mechanisms and related support services to major prime contractors throughout Europe. The acquisition of TELDIX has broadened the Companys European presence and provides complementary product lines that will allow the Company to enhance its offerings to customers worldwide and should provide new channel-to-market opportunities for the Companys current products and services. In 2006 TELDIX was combined with the Companys existing German operations and is now called Rockwell Collins Deutschland GmbH. In 2006 the purchase price and purchase price allocation were finalized. The cash purchase price, net of cash acquired, was $19 million of which $45 million was allocated to goodwill and $15 million to finite lived intangible assets with a weighted average life of approximately 11 years. The excess purchase price over net assets acquired reflects the Companys view that there are opportunities to expand its market share in the European region. Approximately 18 percent of the goodwill resulting from this acquisition is tax deductible. Goodwill is included within the assets of the Government Systems segment.
