In January 20X3, Paris Ink Company (Paris) purchased 80% of the common shares of Slade Paper Ltd. (Slade) by issuing common shares worth $ 800,000. At that date, Slade’s common shares and retained earnings totaled $ 250,000 and $ 340,000 respectively. The net carrying values and fair values of the net identifiable assets of Slade were the same except for the following:
1. The fair market value (FMV) of inventory was greater than carrying value by $ 50,000.
2. The FMV of capital assets had replacement cost that exceeded net carrying value (NCV) by $ 120,000, although net realizable value exceeded NCV by only $ 60,000 (management planned to retain the capital assets throughout their remaining useful life of 12 years).
3. Although the NCV of Slade’s bonds payable was $ 400,000, the FMV was $ 460,000, due to a decline in the interest rates since the bonds were originally issued. The bonds payable mature on December 31, 20X8, and have a nominal rate of interest of 12%. The companies use straight-line amortization for bond premiums and discounts.
