In November 2011, the Company obtained control over Beijing Xinlian Xinde Advertisement Media Co., Ltd. (Xinlian Xinde) and renamed it to Beijing iQIYI to operate the internet video streaming services business. Beijing iQIYI holds the ICP license and other licenses and permits necessary for the Groups business operations.
In November 2012, Baidu Holdings Limited (Baidu) purchased all of the Series A and Series B redeemable convertible preferred shares of the Company for a purchase price of RMB1,188,363. Together with Baidus previously held equity investment in the Company with a fair value of RMB811,014, Baidu obtained a controlling financial interest of the Company. The Company elected the option to apply pushdown accounting in the period in which the change in control event occurred to reflect Baidus basis of accounting in the Companys consolidated financial statements. The acquisition was accounted for in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) topic 805, Business Combinations, and the fair values of the underlying assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition date recorded by Baidu are pushed down and reflected in the Companys consolidated financial statements with an offsetting adjustment to additional paid-in capital. The adjustment to additional paid-in-capital includes the effects of the fair value of noncontrolling interests of the Company at the acquisition date.
The following table presents the allocation of the purchase price to the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, which were determined by the Group with the assistance of an independent valuation firm. The goodwill is primarily attributable to the synergies expected to be achieved from the acquisition.

On May 11, 2013, the Company acquired the online video business of PPStream, Inc. for a consideration of RMB2,169,052.
