RM300,000 and issuing 30,000 shares of Meranti Bhd, RM10 par ordinary share with a market
value of RM20 per share. Other costs incurred for the acquisition were legal fees RM27,000 and
consulting fees RM18,000. Given that the cost of investment has been taken into account, the fair
value of assets and liabilities at the acquisition date are as follows:
Meranti Bhd
RM 735,000
150,000
135,000

acquisition date. However, the assets of land and building (net) have not been revalued to the
amount of RM364,500 and RM440,000 respectively and account payables are understated by
RM12,500 during the acquisition of Cengal Bhd.
REQUIRED:
(a) Prepare a journal entry to record an acquisition of Cengal Bhd on 31 December 2012.
