Mobile Solutions Business Unit


On July 31, 2008 the Company completed the divestiture of its Mobile Solutions Business Unit (“MSBU”) to a global private equity firm. During the third quarter of 2008, the Company recorded a net gain on divestiture of $3.9 million.  This gain resulted from transferring net liabilities of approximately $9.0 million, netted against cash payments made by the Company of approximately $5.1 million, including transaction related costs of $0.3 million. The net liability primarily consisted of deferred revenue and other liabilities totaling $27.8 million offset by deferred costs and other assets of approximately $18.8 million. Previously, MSBU was reported as part of the Company’s Other segment.  Concurrent with the closing of the transaction, the Company entered into a manufacturing agreement whereby the Company will continue to develop and manufacture wireless IP-based products for sale to the divested entity. Due to the ongoing direct cash flows pursuant to the manufacturing agreement, the sale of the MSBU assets did not meet the criteria for presentation as a discontinued operation under SFAS 144.
