05 Intangible Assets
Intangible assets include industrial property rights, similar rights and other assets acquired against payment. In 2014, the acquisition of Scil Proteins Production GmbH and the full consolidation of Siltronic Silicon Wafer Pte. Ltd. led to identification of intangible assets in the amount of € 16.8 million during the purchase price allocation. The assets in question – the companies’ order backlog and customer base – will be amortized over a period of three to five years.
