On 1-Dec-11, LUFK reported that it acquired substantially all of the assets of Quinn’s Oilfield Supply Ltd. for approximately $311 million.
Prior to acquiring Quinn, LUFK had completed four acquisitions in the last five years, all of which occurred since March 2009. The combined consideration for those four totaled $93 million, $56 million of which was allocated to goodwill. The largest was the March 2009 acquisition of International Lift Systems for $50 million. The aggregate amount of goodwill recorded from these acquisitions represented approximately 60% of the total consideration paid by LUFK. In fact, at least 50% of the total price paid on each acquisition was allocated to goodwill. The allocation of the purchase price for Quinn’s is not yet available.
