(a) horizontal combination—both are marine engine manufacturers (b) vertical combination—manufacturer buys distribution outlets (c) conglomerate—unrelated businesses 2. By accepting cash in exchange for the net as- sets of the company, the seller would have to recog- nize an immediate taxable gain. However, if the seller were to accept common stock of another cor- poration instead, the seller could construct the trans- action as a tax-free reorganization. The seller could then account for the transaction as a tax-free ex- change. The seller would not pay taxes until the shares received were sold. 3. Identifiable assets (fair value)......... $600,000 Deferred tax liability ($200,000 × 40%)...................... (80,000 ) Net assets.................................. $520,000 Goodwill [($850,000 – $520,000) ÷ 60%]. $550,000 Deferred tax liability ($550,000 × 40%)...................... (220,000 ) Net goodwill............................... $330,000 4. (a) The net assets and goodwill will be recor- ded at their full fair value on the books of the parent on the date of acquisition.

Semos will record the removal of its net assets at their book values. Semos will record a gain on the sale of business of $500,000 ($900,000 – $400,000). 6.
