Explanation

Given:

1,200,000 shares were authorized and 375,000 were issued and outstanding $5par common shares.

(a) No. of shares issued and outstanding = 375,000

Cash Dividend per share = $0.30

Total cash dividend = No. of shares issued and outstanding × Cash Dividend per share

Total cash dividend = 375,000 × $0.30

Total cash dividend = $112,500

(c) No. of shares repurchased = 8,000

Value of repurchase = $18 per share

Total Value of repurchase of shares = No. of shares repurchased ×Value of repurchase

Total Value of repurchase of shares = 8,000 × $18

Total Value of repurchase of shares = $144,000

(d) No. of shares issued = 1,500

Market value of shares issued = $23

Par Value = $5

Total Market value of shares issued = No. of shares issued × Market value of shares issued

Total Market value of shares issued = 1,500 × $23

Total Market value of shares issued = $34,500

Total par value of shares issued = No. of shares issued × Par value of shares

Total par value of shares issued = 1,500 × $5

Total par value of shares issued = $7,500

Additional Paid-in Capital = Total Market value of shares issued - Total par value of shares issued

Additional Paid-in Capital = $34,500 - $7,500

Additional Paid-in Capital = $27,000

(e) No
