The two companies continued to operate as separate entities subsequent to the combination. Although the board of directors was never formally asked to approve this new venture, the president moved forward with optimism and a rather substantial amount of money each of the five prior years and had never reported a profit for the original owners.

Counter ,000 plus accrued interest of 0 on a short-term note. Not surprisingly, the boatyard continued to lose money after Amazing Chemical purchased it, and the losses grew larger each month.
The acquisition price of the cars is approximately the same under all three alternatives. You have been asked to compare and contrast the three alternatives from the perspective of: (1) The impact on Crumple's consolidated balance sheet. (3) The ability to control the maintenance, repair, and replacement of automobiles. You are to consider any alternatives that might be used in acquiring the required automobiles. You are to select the preferred alternatives and show why is the best choice.

C5-3 Consolidating an Unprofitable Subsidiary Amazing Chemical Corporation's president had always wanted his own yacht and crew and concluded that Amazing Chemical should diversity its investments by purchasing an existing boatyard and repair facility on the lake shore near his summer home.
P4-26 Comprehensive Problem: Consolidation of Majority-Owned Subsidiary On January 2, 2008, B. Counter Corporation purchased 75% of Ticken Tie Company's outstanding common stock. N Counter issued bonds payable with a par and fair value of 0,000 directly to the selling stockholders of Ticken Tie. He could then purchase a yacht and have a convenient place to store it and have it repaired.
Crumple Car Rentals is planning to expand into the western part of the United States and needs to acquire approximately 400 additional automobiles for rental purposes.
Because Crumple's cash reserves were substantially depleted in replacing the bumpers on existing automobiles with new "fashion plate" bumpers, the expansion funds must be acquired through other means. Create a wholly owned leasing subsidiary that would borrow the money with a guarantee for payment from Crumple.
The president does not plan to tell anyone about the losses, which do not show up in the consolidated income statement that the chief accountant prepared.
