Question Description

On January 1, 2012, Uncle Company purchased 80 percent of Nephew Company’s capital stock for $500,000 in cash and other assets. Nephew had a book value of $600,000 and the 20 percent noncontrolling interest fair value was $125,000 on that date. On January 1, 2011, Nephew had acquired 30 percent of Uncle for $280,000. Uncle’s appropriately adjusted book value as of that date was $900,000.

 Separate operating income figures (not including investment income) for these two companies follow. In addition, Uncle declares and pays $20,000 in dividends to shareholders each year and Nephew distributes $5,000 annually. Any excess fair-value allocations are amortized over a 10-year period.
