Schlumberger 2010 Annual Report - page 68

(4) Prior to the completion of the merger, Smith and Schlumberger operated M-I SWACO, a drilling fluids joint venture that was 40% owned by
Schlumberger and 60% owned by Smith. Effective at the closing of the merger, M-I SWACO is now owned 100% by Schlumberger. As a result of
obtaining control of this joint venture, Schlumberger was required under generally accepted accounting principles to remeasure its previously
held equity interest in the joint venture at its merger-date fair value and recognize the resulting pretax gain of $1.3 billion ($1.2 billion after-tax)
in earnings. This gain is classified as
Gain on Investment in M-I SWACO
in the
Consolidated Statement of Income
Prior to acquiring Smith, Schlumberger recorded income relating to this venture using the equity method of accounting. The carrying value of
Schlumberger’s investment in the joint venture on December 31, 2009 was $1.4 billion, and was included within
Investments in Affiliated
on the
Consolidated Balance Sheet
. Schlumberger’s equity income from this joint venture was $78 million in 2010 (representing the
period from January 1, 2010 to August 27, 2010), $131 million in 2009 and $210 million in 2008. Schlumberger received cash distributions from the
joint venture of $50 million in 2010, $106 million in 2009 and $57 million in 2008.
(5) The goodwill recognized is primarily attributable to expected synergies that will result from combining the operations of Schlumberger and Smith
as well as intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition. Approximately $0.2 billion of the goodwill is deductible for income tax
Acquisition of Geoservices
On April 23, 2010, Schlumberger completed the acquisition of Geoservices, a privately owned oilfield services
company specializing in mud logging, slickline and production surveillance operations, for $915 million in cash.
The purchase price has been allocated to the net assets acquired upon their estimated fair values as follows:
(Stated in millions)
$ 26
Other assets
Fixed assets
Intangible assets
Long-term debt
Deferred tax liabilities
Other liabilities
$ 915
The long-term debt was repaid at the time of closing.
Intangible assets recorded in connection with this transaction, which primarily relate to customer relationships, will
be amortized over a weighted average period of approximately 17 years. The amount allocated to goodwill represents the
excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired and is not tax deductible for income tax
Other Acquisitions
Schlumberger has made other acquisitions and minority investments, none of which were significant on an individual
basis, for cash payments, net of cash acquired, of $212 million during 2010, $514 million during 2009, and $345 million
during 2008.
