Software AG interim report 2 2013

33 04 SOFTWARE AG’S SHARE 09 Interim Management Report 22 interim Financial Statements 30 Notes to the Interim Financial Statements 44 Service Software AG acquired the Apama complex event processing platform by Progress in July and thus after the balance sheet date, but before the release of the half-year financial statements. Software AG assumed all assets and liabilities associated with these operations as well as the 105 employees working in this business segment (asset deal). The Apama event processing platform is an environment for the design and operation of CEP applications. The consideration due for this acquisition is anticipated to amount to approximately €34 million. Due to the short period of time between the time of acquisition and the publication release of this half-year report, a preliminary purchase price allocation could not take place. Software AG considers the impact of this acquisition on the Group’s financial position, financial performance and cash flows to be immaterial. NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED BALANCE SHEET [5] Goodwill Goodwill amounted to €801,628 thousand as of June 30, 2013, an increase of €45,256 thousand compared to December 31, 2012. Of the rise in goodwill, €3,816 thousand resulted from currency translation gains, due in particular to the strong U.S. dollar, and €41,440 thousand from the Company’s acquisitions described in Note 4. [6] Shareholders’ equity Share capital Software AG’s share capital totaled €86,917 thousand as of June 30, 2013, divided into 86,917,445 bearer shares. Each share entitles its holder to one vote.
