In addition, Spider has internally developed assets that remain unrecorded on its books. In deriving the acquisition price, Pratt assessed Spider’s fair and book value differences as follows:

Problem 33 on page 84. This problem tests your application of the statutory merger method for business combinations.
On January 1, NewTune Company exchanges 15,000 shares of its common stock for all of the outstanding shares of On-the-Go, Inc. Each of NewTune’s shares has a $4 par value and a $50 fair value. The fair value of the stock exchanged in the acquisition was considered equal to On-the-Go’s fair value. NewTune also paid $25,000 in stock registration and issuance costs in connection with the merger.
Several of On-the-Go’s accounts’ fair values differ from their book values on this date:

a.
Assume that this combination is a statutory merger so that On-the-Go’s accounts will be transferred to the records of NewTune. On-the-Go will be dissolved and will no longer exist as a legal entity. Prepare a postcombination balance sheet for NewTune as of the acquisition date.
b. Assume that no dissolution takes place in connection with this combination. Rather, both companies retain their separate legal identities. Prepare a worksheet to consolidate the two companies as of the combination date.
c. How do the balance sheet accounts compare across parts (a) and (b)?
