On January 15, 2011 the company issued bonds with a face value of $900,000 at 98; brokerage fees and other costs of issuance were $3,450. On January 22, 2011 the proceeds from the bond issue plus additional cash held by the company on December 31, 2010 were used to liquidate the $1 million of short-term notes. The December 31, 2010 balance sheet is issued on February 12, 2011.
