Since president Tony Chavez has just concluded his speech on the recent success and bright future of Kemper, he is take aback by this question and responds, “I remember we paid $1,300,000 for that stock some years ago, and I am sure we sold that stock at a much higher price. You must be mistaken.”
Kerwin retorts, “Well right here in footnote number 7 to the annual report it shows that 240,000 shares, a 30% interest in UMW, were sold on the last day of the year. Also, it states that UMW earned $520,000 this year and paid out $160,000 in cash dividends. Further, a summary statement indicates that in past years, while Kemper held UMW stock, UMW earned $1,240,000 and paid out $440,000 in dividends. Finally, the income statement for this year shows a loss on the sale of UMW stock of $180,000. So I doubt I am mistaken.”
Red-Faced president Chavez turns to you.
Explain why both stockholder Kerwin and president Chavex are correct.
