Question

On January 1, 2011, Peanut Company acquired 80% of the common stock of Salt Company for $200,000. On this date, Salt had total owners’ equity of $200,000, which included retained earnings of $100,000. During 2011 and 2012, Peanut accounted for its investment in Salt using the simple equity method. Any excess of cost over book value is attributable to inventory (worth $12,500 more than cost), to equipment (worth $25,000 more than book value), and to goodwill. FIFO is used for inventories. The equipment has a remaining life of four years, and straight-line depreciation is used. Any remaining excess is attributed to goodwill.
On January 1, 2012, Peanut held merchandise acquired from Salt for $20,000. During 2012, Salt sold merchandise to Peanut for $40,000, $10,000 of which was still held by Peanut on December 31, 2012. Salt’s usual gross profit is 50%. On January 1, 2011, Peanut sold equipment to Salt at a gain of $15,000.
