Note 8 — Acquisitions
In October 2014, the Company announced that it had reached agreement with CSR plc on the terms of a recommended cash offer to acquire the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of CSR for £9.00 per ordinary share, which values the entire issued and to be issued share capital of CSR at approximately £1.6 billion (approximately $2.4 billion based upon an exchange rate of USD: GBP 1.51571). CSR is an innovator in the development of multifunction semiconductor platforms and technologies for the automotive, consumer and voice and music market categories. The acquisition complements the Company’s current offerings by adding products, channels and customers in the growth categories of the Internet of Everything and automotive infotainment, accelerating the Company’s presence and path to leadership. The acquisition has received approval of CSR’s shareholders and regulatory approval in the United States. The completion of the acquisition remains subject to satisfaction of a number of additional conditions, including other regulatory approvals. Subject to the satisfaction of these conditions, the acquisition is expected to close by the end of the summer of 2015. In connection with the pending acquisition, the Company agreed to set aside certain cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities (Note 11).
