Pavin acquires all of Stabler's outstanding shares on January 1, 2015, for $560,000 in cash.

Pavin acquires all of Stabler's outstanding shares on January 1, 2015, for $560,000 in cash. Of this amount, $40,000 was attributed to equipment with a 10-year remaining life and $50,000 was assigned to trademarks expensed over a 20-year period. Pavin applies the partial equity method so that income is accrued each period based solely on the earnings reported by the subsidiary.

On January 1, 2018, Pavin reports $400,000 in bonds outstanding with a carrying amount of $368,000. Stabler purchases half of these bonds on the open market for $192,000.During 2018, Pavin begins to sell merchandise to Stabler. During that year, inventory costing $90,000 was transferred at a price of $120,000. All but $20,000 (at sales price) of these goods were resold to outside parties by year-end. Stabler still owes $43,000 for inventory shipped from Pavin during December.
