    On 1/1/01, Acquirer acquires Acquiree by paying $100,000 in cash to the former owners of Acquiree for all of their stock and then merges Acquiree into itself.
    Given that the deal was struck after Acquirer performed a valuation that noted that:
    - the fair market value of the other assets is $90,000
    - the fair market value of the liabilities currently on Acquiree's books is $10,000 as reported
    - the fair market value of a patent filed, obtained, and held by Acquiree is $4,000
    - and Acquirer will also be assuming $2,000 in Acquiree liabilities currently "off-balance sheet"

    Part 1. Record the acquisition transaction for Acquirer using the balance sheet equation format below.
    Assets = Liab. + OE

    Part 2. If half of the goodwill created above is seen to be for "In Process R&D" what will be the next transaction recorded by Acquirer?

    Assets = Liab. + OE

    Part 3. a. What will be the accounting for the patent subsequently?
