Week 1 Discussion

Acquisitions in Business

Each weekly unit contains one graded discussion related to the material covered in that weekly unit. Each week you are required to post at least three (3) times in the graded discussion, to earn a maximum of 20 points.  Your discussion postings will be evaluated on content, participation and the ability to communicate effectively.

Each week your posts (responses) to the graded discussion will be graded according to the following policy:

When responding to your classmate's main posts, be sure to address whether or not you agree with their analysis. Your responses should enhance the discussion by posing new questions, offering new ways to consider the issues being discussed, introducing new sources of information based on research, and building on ideas posted by your classmates.

Please note: A quality response is not a one-liner; it is a thoughtful presentation of an idea. Examples of quality postings include providing additional information to the discussion, elaborating on previous comments, presenting explanations of concepts or methods to help fellow students, supporting your opinion with examples from the textbook or some outside source, and providing reasons for or against something in a persuasive fashion. Feel free to do research on the Web or in the online library and use the research in your comments within the discussions. Your grade quality will be based on how well you support your opinions related to the discussion topics and how well you interact with your classmates. NOTE: You will not be given full credit for repeating something that has already been stated or by merely copying and pasting something you found on the web.

Words of caution: Making three posts does NOT guarantee that you will earn full credit for the week. In general, more postings from you will enable me to make a better assessment of your understanding of the material, and this, in turn, will increase your chances of getting full credit.

Remember, the discussions are a means by which students respond to questions, react to other students, and respond to ideas shared by other classmates and the instructor. A successful student in online education is a noisy learner, one who is active and creative in the learning process (Nipper, 1989).

Week 3 Course Project

Overview

Scenario

Parent Inc. is contemplating a tender offer to acquire 80% of Subsidiary Corporation's common stock. Subsidiary's shares are currently quoted on the New York Stock Exchange at $85 per share. In order to have a reasonable chance of the tender offer attracting 80% of Subsidiary's stock, Parent believes it will have to offer at least $105 per share. If the tender offer is made and is successful, the purchase will be consummated on January 1, 20X1.

A typical part of the planning of a proposed business combination is the preparation of projected or pro forma consolidated financial statements. As a member of Parent's accounting group, you have been asked to prepare the pro forma 20X1 consolidated financial statements for Parent and Subsidiary assuming that 80% of Subsidiary's stock is acquired at a price of $105 per share. To support your computations, Martha Franklin, the chairperson of Parent's acquisitions committee, has provided you with the projected 20X1 financial statements for Subsidiary. (The projected financial statements for Subsidiary and several other companies were prepared earlier for the acquisition committee's use in targeting a company for acquisition.) The projected financial statements for Subsidiary for 20X1 and Parent's actual 20X0 financial statements are presented in Table 1.

Assumptions

Franklin has asked you to use the assumptions below to project Parent's 20X1 financial statements:

Sales will increase by 10% in 20X1.

All sales will be on account.

Accounts receivable will be 5% lower on December 31, 20X1, than on December 31, 20X0.

Cost of goods sold will increase by 9% in 20X1.

All purchases of merchandise will be on account.

Accounts payable is expected to be $50,500 on December 31, 20X1.

Inventory will be 3% higher on December 31, 20X1 than on December 31, 20X0.

Straight-line depreciation is used for all fixed assets.

No fixed assets will be disposed of during 20X1. The annual depreciation on existing assets is $40,000 per year.

Equipment will be purchased on January 1, 20X1, for $48,000 cash. The equipment will have an estimated life of 10 years, with no salvage value.

Operating expenses, other than depreciation, will increase by 14% in 20X1.

All operating expenses, other than depreciation, will be paid in cash.

Parent's income tax rate is 40%, and taxes are paid in cash in four equal payments. Payments will be made on the 15th of April, June, September, and December. For simplicity, assume taxable income equals financial reporting income before taxes.

Parent will continue the $2.50 per share annual cash dividend on its common stock.

If the tender offer is successful, Parent will finance the acquisition by issuing $170,000 of 6% nonconvertible bonds at par on January 1, 20X1. The bonds would first pay interest on July 1, 20X1 and would pay interest semi annually thereafter each January 1 and July 1 until maturity on January 1, 20Y1.(Note: This is a 10-year bond)

This business combination will be recorded using acquisition method and Parent will account for the investment using the equity method. Although most of the legal work related to the acquisition will be handled by Parent's staff attorney, direct costs to prepare and process the tender offer will total $2,000 and will be paid in cash by Parent in 20X1.

As of January 1, 20X1, all of Subsidiary's assets and liabilities are fairly valued except for machinery with a book value of $8,000, an estimated fair value of $9,500, and a 5-year remaining useful life. Assume that straight line depreciation is used to amortize any revaluation increment.

No transactions between these companies occurred prior to 20X1. Regardless of whether they combine, Parent plans to buy $50,000 of merchandise from Subsidiary in 20X1 and will have $3,600 of these purchases remaining in inventory on December 31, 20X1. In addition, Subsidiary is expected to buy $2,400 of merchandise from Parent in 20X1 and to have $495 of these purchases in inventory on December 31, 20X1. Parent and Subsidiary price their products to yield a 65% and 80% markup on cost, respectively.

Parent intends to use three financial yardsticks to determine the financial attractiveness of the combination. First, Parent wishes to acquire Subsidiary Corporation only if 20X1 consolidated earnings per share will be at least as high as the earnings per share Parent would report if no combination takes place. Second, Parent will consider the proposed combination unattractive if it will cause the consolidated current ratio to fall below two to one. Third, return on average stockholders' equity must remain above 20% for the combined entity.

If the financial yardsticks described above and the nonfinancial aspects of the combination are appealing, then the tender offer will be made. On the other hand, if these objectives are not met, the acquisition will either be restructured or abandoned.

Forecast the separate financial statements of Parent Inc. Using Ms. Franklin's assumptions and Parent's 20X0 financial statements, prepare pro forma 20X1 financial statements for Parent Inc., assuming that the acquisition is not attempted. Support your statements with appropriate work papers and journal entries. Pro forma financial statements include a statement of operation, a statement of retained earnings, a balance sheet, and a cash flow statement.

Create a multimedia piece (such as a narrated power point slides with at least a 2-3 minute narration) summarizing your solution in the assignment section of week 3. Do not make it available to the class.

ACCT559 Advanced Accounting

Week 6 Course Project

Overview

Scenario

Parent Inc. is contemplating a tender offer to acquire 80% of Subsidiary Corporation's common stock. Subsidiary's shares are currently quoted on the New York Stock Exchange at $85 per share. In order to have a reasonable chance of the tender offer attracting 80% of Subsidiary's stock, Parent believes it will have to offer at least $105 per share. If the tender offer is made and is successful, the purchase will be consummated on January 1, 20X1.

A typical part of the planning of a proposed business combination is the preparation of projected or pro forma consolidated financial statements. As a member of Parent's accounting group, you have been asked to prepare the pro forma 20X1 consolidated financial statements for Parent and Subsidiary assuming that 80% of Subsidiary's stock is acquired at a price of $105 per share. To support your computations, Martha Franklin, the chairperson of Parent's acquisitions committee, has provided you with the projected 20X1 financial statements for Subsidiary. (The projected financial statements for Subsidiary and several other companies were prepared earlier for the acquisition committee's use in targeting a company for acquisition.) The projected financial statements for Subsidiary for 20X1 and Parent's actual 20X0 financial statements are presented in Table 1.

Assumptions

Franklin has asked you to use the assumptions below to project Parent's 20X1 financial statements:

Sales will increase by 10% in 20X1.

All sales will be on account.

Accounts receivable will be 5% lower on December 31, 20X1, than on December 31, 20X0.

Cost of goods sold will increase by 9% in 20X1.

All purchases of merchandise will be on account.

Accounts payable is expected to be $50,500 on December 31, 20X1.

Inventory will be 3% higher on December 31, 20X1 than on December 31, 20X0.

Straight-line depreciation is used for all fixed assets.

No fixed assets will be disposed of during 20X1. The annual depreciation on existing assets is $40,000 per year.

Equipment will be purchased on January 1, 20X1, for $48,000 cash. The equipment will have an estimated life of 10 years, with no salvage value.

Operating expenses, other than depreciation, will increase by 14% in 20X1.

All operating expenses, other than depreciation, will be paid in cash.

Parent's income tax rate is 40%, and taxes are paid in cash in four equal payments. Payments will be made on the 15th of April, June, September, and December. For simplicity, assume taxable income equals financial reporting income before taxes.

Parent will continue the $2.50 per share annual cash dividend on its common stock.

If the tender offer is successful, Parent will finance the acquisition by issuing $170,000 of 6% nonconvertible bonds at par on January 1, 20X1. The bonds would first pay interest on July 1, 20X1 and would pay interest semi annually thereafter each January 1 and July 1 until maturity on January 1, 20Y1.(Note: This is a 10-year bond)

This business combination will be recorded using acquisition method and Parent will account for the investment using the equity method. Although most of the legal work related to the acquisition will be handled by Parent's staff attorney, direct costs to prepare and process the tender offer will total $2,000 and will be paid in cash by Parent in 20X1.

As of January 1, 20X1, all of Subsidiary's assets and liabilities are fairly valued except for machinery with a book value of $8,000, an estimated fair value of $9,500, and a 5-year remaining useful life. Assume that straight line depreciation is used to amortize any revaluation increment.

No transactions between these companies occurred prior to 20X1. Regardless of whether they combine, Parent plans to buy $50,000 of merchandise from Subsidiary in 20X1 and will have $3,600 of these purchases remaining in inventory on December 31, 20X1. In addition, Subsidiary is expected to buy $2,400 of merchandise from Parent in 20X1 and to have $495 of these purchases in inventory on December 31, 20X1. Parent and Subsidiary price their products to yield a 65% and 80% markup on cost, respectively.

Parent intends to use three financial yardsticks to determine the financial attractiveness of the combination. First, Parent wishes to acquire Subsidiary Corporation only if 20X1 consolidated earnings per share will be at least as high as the earnings per share Parent would report if no combination takes place. Second, Parent will consider the proposed combination unattractive if it will cause the consolidated current ratio to fall below two to one. Third, return on average stockholders' equity must remain above 20% for the combined entity.

If the financial yardsticks described above and the nonfinancial aspects of the combination are appealing, then the tender offer will be made. On the other hand, if these objectives are not met, the acquisition will either be restructured or abandoned.

* Parent: $12.50 par; Subsidiary: $75 par               

Perform ratio analysis. Compute earnings per share for (1) the separate financial statements of Parent Inc. prepared in Milestone 1 and (2) the consolidated financial statements contained in the solution for the pro forma consolidation worksheet prepared in Milestone 3. Also, calculate current ratio and return on average stockholders' equity for the separate company and consolidated financial statements.

Write a memorandum (as a Word document) to Ms. Franklin summarizing the results of your analysis, including a summary of the financial ratios you computed and your recommendation. Attach copies of both sets of pro forma financial statements of Parent Inc. and the pro forma consolidation worksheet.

Create a multimedia piece (such as a narrated power point slides with at least a 2-3 minute narration) summarizing your solution in the assignment section of week 6. Do not make it available to the class..
