During this initial year of operation, the subsidiary reported a profit of 26,000 kites. It distributed two dividends each for 5,000 kites with one dividend paid on March 1 and the other on October 1. Applicable exchange rates for 1 kite follow: Jan 1, 2013( start of businiess) $0.80; March 1, 2013 0.78; Weighted average rate for 2013 0.77; October 1,2013 0.76; December 31, 2013 0.75.
