On January 1, 2013, NewTune Company exchanges 15,000 shares of its common stock for all of the outstanding shares of On-the-Go, Inc. Each 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 Om-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 have fair values that differ from their book values on this date:
Receivables $65,000 (book value) $63,000 (fair value)
Trademarks 95,000 (BV) 225,000 (FV)
Record music catalog 60,000 (BV) 180,000 (FV)
In-process research and development -0- (BV) 200,000 (FV)
Notes Payable (50,000) (BV) (45,000) (FV)

Precombination January 1, 2013, book values for the two companies are as follows:

Additional Paid-in Capital (30,000) (NT) (30,000) (OTG)
Retained earnings (860,000) (NT) (190,000) (OTG)
