Intangible Assets. Goodwill represents the unamortized excess of the cost of acquiring a business over the fair values of the net assets received at the date of acquisition. Goodwill is no longer being amortized as required by SFAS No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets.

We test the impairment of goodwill each year or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. We completed our last assessment during June 2006. At that time, no adjustment to goodwill was necessary due to impairment.

We evaluate the impairment of identifiable intangibles and other long-lived assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable.

Factors considered that might trigger an impairment review consist of:

·                  Significant underperformance relative to expected historical or projected future operating results

·                  Significant changes in the manner of use of the acquired assets or the strategy for the overall business

·                  Significant negative industry or economic trends

·                  Significant decline in Zebra’s stock price for a sustained period

·                  Significant decline in market capitalization relative to net book value

If we believe that one or more of the above indicators of impairment have occurred, we measure impairment based on a projected discounted cash flow using a discount rate that incorporates the risk inherent in the cash flows.

Other intangible assets consist primarily of customer relationships, current technology and patents and patent licenses. These assets are recorded at cost and amortized on a straight-line basis over a weighted-average life of 8 years, which approximates the estimated useful lives. Accumulated amortization for these other intangible assets was $13,501,000 and $10,415,000 at December 31, 2006 and 2005, respectively.
