Question

The summarized trial balances of Phase Limited and Step Limited as of December 31,
Year 5, are as follows (amounts in thousands):
Phase had acquired the investment in Step in three stages:
The January 1, Year 2, acquisition enabled Phase to elect 3 members to the
10-member board of directors of Step. The January 1, Year 4, acquisition did not
give Phase control over Step. Any difference between cost and the underlying
carrying amount for each acquisition is attributable equally to land and to pat-
ents, which are expected to produce benefits until December 31, Year 11. Step had
issued 20,000 shares on July 1, Year 1, the date of incorporation, and has neither
issued nor retired shares since that date. Other information follows:
• Sale of depreciable assets (six-year remaining useful life), from Phase to Step,
on June 30, Year 5, at a gain of $60,000.
• Intercompany sales:
• Opening inventory of Phase contained merchandise purchased from Step for
$10,000. Company policy was for a 20% gross margin on intercompany sales.
Ending inventory of Phase contained merchandise purchased from Step for
$5,000. One-half of the goods sold intercompany during Year 5 had not been
paid for by year-end.
