On January 1, 2020, Panther, Inc., issued securities with a total fair value of $577,000 for 100 per- cent of Stark Corporation’s outstanding ownership shares. Stark has long supplied inventory to Panther. The companies expect to achieve synergies with production scheduling and product development with this combination.

At the end of 2021, Panther held $38,000 (transfer price) of inventory acquired from Stark, all from its 2021 purchases.
