On January 1, 2013, an investor purchases 28,000 common shares of an investee at $12 (cash) per share. The shares represent 20% ownership in the investee. The investee's common stock does not have a readily determinable fair value. On January 1, 2013, the book value of the investee's assets and liabilities equals $900,000 and $200,000, respectively. On that date, the appraised fair values of the investee's identifiable net assets approximated the recorded book values, except for a customer list. On January 1, 2013, the customer list had a recorded book value of $0, an estimated fair value equal to $50,000 and a 5 year remaining useful life. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the investee company reported net income equal to $42,000 and dividends equal to $20,000.

Noncontrolling investment accounting (price different from book value)
