On January 1, 2009 Plano purchased an additional 32 percent (64,000 shares) of Sumter for $965,750 in cash and began to use the equity method. This price represented a $50,550 payment in excess of the book value of Sumter's underlying net assets. Plano was willing to make this extra payment because of a recently developed patent held by Sumter with a 15-year remaining life. All other assets were considered appropriately valued on Sumter's books.
On July 1, 2010, Plano sold 10 percent (20,000 shares) of Sumter's outstanding shares for $425,000 in cash. Although it sold this interest, Plano maintained the ability to significantly influence Sumter's decision-making process. Assume that Plano uses a weighted average costing system.
Prepare the journal entries for Plano for the years of 2007 through 2010.
