On 1/1/2014, P Company acquires 100% of the voting stock of S, Inc. for $18,000,000 in cash. Some of S assets had

fair values that differed from their book values, as follows:

                                                                                                           BOOK VALUE        FAIR VALUE

Property & Equipment, net (20 remaining life, SL)                  $11,000,000          $3,000,000

Identifiable intangible assets (5 years, SL)                                   $            000          $10,000,000

S total stockholders' equity at 1/1/2014 was $5,000,000. Now we are at 12/31/2017, four years later. S's retained earnings, January 1, 2017 reflect the accumulation of net income less dividends. S does not report any AOCI. Cumulative goodwill impairment to the beginning of 2017 is $1,000,000. Additional goodwill impairment of $500,000 was incurred in 2017. P uses the complete equity method to record its investment in S. The trial balance at 12/31/2017 for S appears below.
