I-15.01 Stearns Corporation was a diversified company with two separate lines of business - chemicals and financial services. At the beginning of 20X7, Strearns sold its financial services unit, resulting in a $3,000,000 pretax gain. The following additional transactions and events pertain to 20X7: The chemical unit sold a paint factory at pretax loss of $500,000. This asset sale did not represent the sale of a business unit. The company incurred a $700,000 clean-up cost (pretax) associated with an accidental release of potentially hazardous chemicals. The company has very strong controls to prevent such events, and this occurred only because of a series of nonrecurring and unusual system failures. The loss is judged to be extraordinary. General information for 20X7 is as follows: Sales, $7,500,000; Cost of Goods Sold, $3,200,000; Selling Expenses, $1,000,000; and General & Administrative Expenses, $1,500,000.
