Assume that Cheever Company purchased 100 percent of Ham’s common stock for $1,400,000 immediately prior to December 31, 20xx. Also assume that $100,000 of the excess of cost over book value is attributable to the increased value of Ham Company’s property, plant, and equipment. Cheever considers the rest of the excess to be goodwill.
