Problem11.9a Early in 2003, Herndon Industries was formed with authorization to issue 200,000 shares of $10 par value common stock and 30,000 shares of $100 par value cumulative preferred stock. During 2003, all the preferred stock was issued at par, and 120,000 shares of common stock were sold for $16 per share. The preferred stock is entitled to a dividend equal to 10 percent of its par value before any dividends are paid on the common stock. During its first five years of business (2003 through 2007), the company earned income totaling $3,700,000 and paid dividends of 50 cents per share each year on the common stock outstanding. On January 2, 2005, the company purchased 20,000 shares of its own common stock in the open market for $400,000. On January 2,2007, it reissued 10,000 shares of this treasury stock for $250,000.
