Explanation of Solution

Treasury Stock: It refers to the shares that are reacquired by the corporation that are already issued to the stockholders, but reacquisition does not signify retirement.

Record the repurchase of 50,000 shares of own stock at $51 per share.

       Cash2,550,000
(To record purchase of treasury stock)

Table (1)

  • Treasury stock is contra-stockholders’ equity account with a normal debit balance. Thus, when treasury stocks are purchased, it decreases the stockholders’ equity account. In this case, it reduces the stockholders’ equity by $2,550,000. Therefore, treasury stock account is debited with $2,550,000.
  • Cash is an asset. It is decreased as cash is paid for the purchase of treasury stock. Therefore, the cash account is credited with $2,550,000.

Record the sale of 24,000 shares of treasury stock for cash at $60 per share.
