How would you calculate enterprise value for this deal?

In 2014 Facebook acquired Whatsapp for cash and stock. What is the enterprise value of Whatsapp based on this disclosure?

I'm thinking EV should be $18.327 billion (cash + stock + assumed liability - cash acquired) but why is FB showing purchase consideration of $17.193 billion in the schedule?
