As per Accounting Standard 14, Para 3(g) defines Purchase Consideration as the "aggregate of the shares and other securities issued and the payment made in the form of cash or assets by the transferee company to the shareholders of Transferor Company". Purchase consideration does not include the payments made directly to the creditors by the transferor company. It depends upon the fair value of the elements such as in the case of securities, the value fixed by the statutory authorities and in the case of other assets, the market value of assets given up. In the case of absence of market value, book value of the assets.

Hi In Context of Amalgamation, Purchase Consideration is the value of shares and securities issued by the purchasing company to the shareholders of vendor company. Here the value will be measured by the Market Price of Shares and securities. While calculating purchase consideration amount paid to the Preference Shareholders and Equity Shareholders shall be considered.
