Question: Shelby Corporation purchases 90 of the outstanding stock of Borner

Shelby Corporation purchases 90% of the outstanding stock of Borner Company on January 1, 2011, for $603,000 cash. At that time, Borner Company has the following stockholders’ equity balances: common stock, $200,000; paid-in capital in excess of par, $80,000; and retained earnings, $300,000.
All book values approximate fair values except for the plant assets (undervalued by $50,000 and with an estimated remaining life of 10 years). Any remaining excess is goodwill. De Noma Company acquires a 60% interest in Shelby on January 1, 2013, for $750,000. At this time, Shelby has consolidated shareholders’ equity of common stock, $500,000; paid-in capital in excess of par, $150,000; and controlling retained earnings, $500,000 (not including amortization of excess price applicable to investment in Borner).
At that time, it is also determined that Shelby’s plant assets are undervalued by $50,000 and have a 10-year remaining life. Any remaining excess is goodwill. Intercompany merchandise sales from Borner to Shelby for 2014 are
