Chapter 12 sample test 1. Calculate the total cash the First Corporation would receive if it issues 1,000 shares of $.02 par value per share common stock at a $9 market price per share. The key to this problem is to recognize that the cash a company receives when it issues stock is based on the number of share issued and the market price per share. The company would receive $9,000 when it issues the 1,000 shares. 1,000 shares x $9 market price per share = $9,000 cash. See text exercise 12.1 for similar material. 2. The Second Corporation is authorized to issue a total of 10,000 shares of $.10 par value common stock. Calculate the price per share the corporation must receive in order to raise $80,000 by issuing 10,000 common shares to the public. The key to this problem is to recognize that the cash a company receives when it issues stock is based on the number of share issued and the market price per share. Since the company wants to receive $80,000 when it issues the 10,000 shares, it must receive $8 per share for the shares. 10,000 shares x market price per share = $80,000 cash. Market price per share = $80,000 cash / 10,000 shares = $8 per share. See text exercise 12.2 for similar material. 3. The Third Corporation's March 3 balance sheet included the following information.

Calculate the percentage of the corporation's assets obtained through owners' investments after the 40,000 common shares were retired on March 4. The key to this problem is to recognize that when a company retires its stock, assets and stockholders' equity decrease. In this case, since the company was able to acquire its stock at its par value ($.50 per share), cash and common stock both decrease by

$20,000. As a result, the company's assets decrease to $600,000 and its contributed capital decreases to $180,000. So, immediately after the stock is retired, 30% of the corporation's assets were obtained from owners. Before Retirement After Retirement Assets $620,000 $600,000 Contributed capital $200,000 $180,000 $180,000 contributed capital / $600,000 assets = .3 or 30%. See text exercise 12.3 for similar material. 4. On April 4, the Fourth Corporation acquired 20,000 shares of Lowell Corporation's common stock and still owns the shares on April 30.
