1. Almer Company issued 100,000 shares of common stock, $5 par, for $40 cash per share on December 31, 20X1. Prepare the journal entry.
2. Almer Company had retained earnings of $3.5 million by December 31, 20X5. The board of directors declared a two-for-one stock split and immediately exchanged two $2.50 par shares for each share outstanding. Prepare the journal entry, if any. Present the stockholders’ equity section of the balance sheet before and after the split.
3. Repeat requirement 2, but assume that instead of exchanging two $2.50 par shares for each share outstanding, one additional $5 par share was issued for each share outstanding. Almer said it issued a two-for-one stock split “effected in the form of a stock dividend.”
