On January 1, Paisley, Inc., paid $560,000 for all of Skyler Corporation’s outstanding stock. This cash payment was based on a price of $180 per share for Skyler’s $100 par value preferred stock and $38 per share for its $20 par value common stock. The preferred shares are voting, cumulative, and fully participating. At the acquisition date, the book values of Skyler’s accounts equaled their fair values. Any excess fair value is assigned to an intangible asset and will be amortized over a 10-year period.
