Assume a business combination took place at December 31, 2009. Atwood issued 50 shares of its common stock with a fair value of $35 per share for all of the outstanding common shares of Franz. Stock issuance costs of $15 (in thousands) and direct costs of $10 (in thousands) were paid. To settle a difference of opinion regarding Franz's fair value, Atwood promises to pay an additional $5.2 (in thousands) to the former owners if Franz's earnings exceed a certain sum during the next year. Given the probability of the required contingency payment and utilizing a 4% discount rate, the expected present value of the contingency is $5 (in thousands).
