MACQUARIE EQUIPMENT FINANCE
On March 31, 2015, Huntington completed its acquisition of Macquarie, subsequently rebranded Huntington Technology Finance, in a cash transaction valued at $458 million. The acquisition gives us the ability to drive added growth to our national equipment finance business as well as additional small business finance capabilities.
As a result of the acquisition, Huntington recorded approximately $1.1 billion of assets and assumed $617 million of debt, securitizations, and other liabilities. Assets acquired and liabilities assumed were recorded at fair value in accordance with ASC 805, “Business Combinations”. The fair values for assets were estimated using discounted cash flow analyses using interest rates currently being offered for leases with similar terms (Level 3). This value was reduced by an estimate of probable losses and the credit risk associated with leased assets. The fair values of debt, securitizations, and other liabilities were estimated by discounting cash flows using interest rates currently being offered with similar maturities (Level 3). As part of the acquisition, Huntington recorded $156 million of goodwill, all of which is deductible for tax purposes.
Pro forma results have not been disclosed, as those amounts are not significant to the audited consolidated financial statements.
The entire disclosure for a business combination (or series of individually immaterial business combinations) completed during the period, including background, timing, and recognized assets and liabilities. The disclosure may include leverage buyout transactions (as applicable).
