I don't think it really changes. Cash down, debt up, assets up...balancing.
It's likely that, as with most purchases, the purchase price will all get added to
book (and cash subtracted from book), allocated in various proportions to fixed assets, goodwill etc.

The main thing to keep in mind that some moderate portion of the purchase price
will get amortized over time, causing an economically meaningless hit to earnings.
