(c) On January 1, Year 13, Star issued common shares for $100,000 in cash.
Because Par did not purchase any of these shares, Par’s ownership percentage declined from 70 to 56%. Calculate the gain or loss that would be charged or credited to consolidated shareholders’ equity as a result of this transaction.
