The A corporation brought about a consolidation of three of its competitors into a new corporation, of which it became the owner of all the preferred shares and 57% of the common shares. Stockholders of the consolidated companies received, in exchange for their shares, shares of the new corporation, shares of the A corporation, and cash which the A corporation supplied. Held, the A corporation was not a "party to a reorganization" under § 112(b)(3) of the Revenue Act of 1928; its shares received by stockholders of the consolidated companies were "other property" under § 112(c)(1), and gain thereon was taxable.
