Difference between net assets & identifiable net assets?

Hi, 

What is the difference between net assets & identifiable net assets?

I’m asking in the context of goodwill calculation.

Goodwill is considered an unindentifiable asset.  Target’s goodwill (if it has any) is excluded from identifiable net assets.
