        That has happened to me occasionally, although a day or so later they were working fine. Are you sure it is all videos that are not working? I tihnk it may have something to do with high traffic? (although that really is a complete guess)

      We are comparing what the parent paid for the shares, with what the subsidiary was ‘worth’ at the time we bought the shares.
      At the date we bought the shares, the subsidiary had not even earned the post-acquisition amount, so it would impossible to include them!!!

    i wanted to know why are aren’t we adding the top $15,000 retained earnings? They were earned on the day the company was acquired and should be added to the total retained earnings in the cons. balance sheet?

      Retained earnings are only those that we earned since the date the parent bought the shares in the subsidiary i.e. the post-acquisition earning.

      The earnings that the subsidiary had made before the date of acquisition (the pre-acquisition earnings) had been paid for – the parent paid for them when they bought the shares in the subsidiary. It was part of the reason that the parent paid as much as they did, and so they are included in the calculation of goodwill.
