Question(s) / Instruction(s):

2. On January 1, 2011, Jackie Corp. purchased 30% of the voting common stock of Rob Co., paying $2,000,000. Jackie properly accounts for this investment using the equity method. At the time of the investment, Robs total stockholders equity was $3,000,000. Jackie gathered the following information about Robs assets. The book value of Rob’s assets total $3,500,000 and the fair value total $5,000,000.

Any excess of cost over fair value not attributed to assets was attributed to goodwill, which has not been impaired. Rob Co. reported net income of $300,000 for 2011, and paid dividends of $100,000 during that year.

How much goodwill is associated with this investment? (Points : 2)
