The following are the financial statements of Post Corporation and its subsidiary, Sage Company, as at December 31, Year 3:
Additional Information
• Post purchased 70% of the outstanding shares of Sage on January 1, Year 1, at a cost of $63,000, and has used the cost method to account for its investment. On that date, Sage had accumulated depreciation of $10,000, retained earnings of $15,000, and fair values were equal to carrying amounts for all its net assets, except inventory (overvalued by $12,000).
• In determining the purchase price, the management of Post noted that Sage, as lessee, leases a warehouse under an operating lease that has terms that are unfavourable relative to market terms. However, the lease agreement explicitly prohibits transfer of the lease (through either sale or sublease). An independent appraiser indicated that the fair value of this unfavourable lease agreement is $18,000. There were five years remaining on this lease on the date of acquisition.
