On January 1, 2015, Marshall Company acquired 100 percent of the outstanding common stock of Tucker Company. To acquire these shares, Marshall issued $200,000 in long-term liabilities and 20,000 shares of common stock having a par value of $1 per share but a fair value of $10 per share. Marshall paid $30,000 to accountants, lawyers, and brokers for assistance in the acquisition and another $12,000 in connection with stock issuance costs. Prior to these transactions, the balance sheets for the two companies were as follows:

In Marshall’s appraisal of Tucker, it deemed three accounts to be undervalued on the subsidiary’s books: Inventory by $5,000, Land by $20,000, and Buildings by $30,000. Marshall plans to maintain Tucker’s separate legal identity and to operate Tucker as a wholly owned subsidiary.
