Goodwill Impairment Test The company performs an annual impairment analysis of goodwill as of December 31 of each year, or more often if there are indicators of impairment present. As a result of the company's entry into a definitive merger agreement, under which an affiliate of Citi Venture Capital International, a global private equity investment fund, will acquire the company in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $307 million, the company is performing a goodwill impairment analysis as of June 30, 2011 to determine if the fair value of the company's reporting units implied by the transaction value requires the company to record a goodwill impairment. If the company determines any portion of goodwill is impaired, it would recognize a non-cash charge that would impact GAAP earnings and earnings per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, but would not directly impact Ness' normal business operations or its cash flows. Such a charge would be reported in the company's quarterly earnings release, announced above, and in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. About Ness Technologies
