Question

On July 16, 1996, Wyatt Corp. purchased 40 acres of land for $350,000. The land has been held for a future plant site until the current date, December 31, 2014. On December 18, 2014, TexoPete Inc. purchased 40 acres of land for $2,000,000 to be used for a distribution center. The TexoPete land is located next to the Wyatt Corp. land. Thus, both Wyatt Corp. and TexoPete Inc. own nearly identical pieces of land.
1. What are the valuations of land on the balance sheets of Wyatt Corp. and TexoPete, Inc., using generally accepted accounting principles?
2. How might fair value accounting aid comparability when evaluating these two companies?
