The following table summarizes acquisitions made by Cisco Systems for fiscal year 2000.  Journalists using this table may confirm the data using the following links to Cisco's web site.

1)  For acquisitions made using the purchase method refer to the quarterly earnings release, for which the following link is a good example.  Each quarterly earnings release located in with the"financial news releases" identifies companies acquired using the purchase method including the total amount paid and related R&D write-offs.
2)  Companies acquired using the pooling method are also identified in the same financial news release noted above yet the financial information is not provided.  It can be obtained however by visiting the acquisition summary on Cisco's web site and selecting the particular company.  Note that the summary below is reconciled to the quarterly financial news release and represents companies for which the transaction was completed during the quarter.  It does not reconcile to announced mergers.
