As of July 1, 2016, the investee had assets with a book value of $3 million and liabilities of $74,400. At the time, Shaun held equipment appraised at $364,000 above book value; it was considered to have a seven-year remaining life with no salvage value. Shaun also held a copyright with a five-year remaining life on its books that was undervalued by $972,000. Any remaining excess cost was attributable to goodwill. Depreciation and amortization are computed using the straight-line method. Killearn applies the equity method for its investment in Shaun.

Shaun’s policy is to declare and pay a $1 per share cash dividend every April 1 and October 1. Shaun’s income, earned evenly throughout each year, was $598,000 in 2016, $639,600 in 2017, and $692,400 in 2018.

In addition, Killearn sold inventory costing $91,200 to Shaun for $152,000 during 2017. Shaun resold $92,000 of this inventory during 2017 and the remaining $60,000 during 2018.
