The Mandella family decided early in 2015 to incorporate their family-owned vineyards under the name Mandella Corporation. The corporation was authorized to issue 500,000 shares of a single class of $10 par value capital stock. Presented below is the information necessary to prepare the stockholders’ equity section of the company’s balance sheet at the end of 2015 and at the end of 2016.
2015. In January the corporation issued to members of the Mandella family 150,000 shares of capital stock in exchange for cash and other assets used in the operation of the vineyards. The fair market value of these assets indicated an issue price of $30 per share. In December, Joe Mandella died, and the corporation purchased 10,000 shares of its own capital stock from his estate at $34 per share. Because of the large cash outlay to acquire this treasury stock, the directors decided not to declare cash dividends in 2015 and instead declared a 10 percent stock dividend to be distributed in January 2016. The stock price at the declaration date was $35 per share. (The treasury shares donot participate in the stock dividend.) Net income for 2015 was $940,000.
2016. In January the corporation distributed the stock dividend declared in 2015, and in February, the 10,000 treasury shares were sold to Maria Mandella at $39 per share. In June, the capital stock was split 2-for-1. (Approval was obtained to increase the authorized number of shares to 1 million.) On December 15, the directors declared a cash dividend of $2 per share, payable in January 2017. Net income for 2016 was $1,080,000.
