Acc – myers company ltd. problem

Problem 9 Myers Company Ltd. was formed 10 years ago by the issuance of 22,000 common

shares to three shareholders. Four years later the company went public and issued an additional 30,000 common shares.

 The management of Myers is considering a takeover in which Myers would purchase all of the assets and assume all of the liabilities of Norris Inc. Other costs associated with the takeover would be as follows:

 Legal, appraisal, and fi nders’ fees $ 5,000

 Costs of issuing shares 7,000


 Two alternative proposals are being considered:


 Myers would offer to pay $300,000 cash for the Norris net assets, to be financed by a $300,000 bank loan due in five years.


 Myers would issue 50,000 shares currently trading at $8 each for the Norris net assets. Norris shareholders would be offered five seats on the 10-member board of directors of Myers, and the management of Norris would be absorbed into the surviving company.

 Balance sheet data for the two companies prior to the combination are as follows:
