(i) On 1 July 2016 Laurel acquired 80% of the equity share capital of Hardy. The consideration was satisfied by a share exchange of four shares in Laurel for every seven acquired shares in Hardy. At the date of acquisition, shares in Laurel and Hardy had a market value of £3.50 and £4 respectively. Laurel will also pay a cash consideration of £2 on 30 June 2018 for each acquired share in Hardy. Laurel has a cost of capital of 10%. None of the consideration has been recorded by Laurel. (ii) At the date of acquisition, the fair values of Hardy’s assets and liabilities were equal to their carrying amounts. However, both Laurel and Hardy revalued their properties on 31 March 2017. You may treat the whole of Hardy’s revaluation gain as a post-acquisition gain. (iii) Assume, except where indicated otherwise, that all items of income and expenditure accrue evenly throughout the year. (iv) Laurel’s policy is to value the non-controlling interest (NCI) at fair value at the date of acquisition.
