The following are preliminary financial statements for Red Co. and Orange Co. for the year ending December 31, 2013 prior to Red's acquisition of Orange.

Red's stock on that date has a fair value of $60 per share. Red was willing to issue 10,000 shares of stock because Orange's land was appraised at $200,000. Red also paid $14,000 to several attorneys and accountants who assisted in creating this combination.
