Stanley-Morgan Industries adopted a defined benefit pension plan on April 12, 2011. The provisions of the plan were not made retroactive to prior years. A local bank, engaged as trustee for the plan assets, expects plan assets to earn a 10% rate of return. A consulting firm, engaged as actuary, recommends 6% as the appropriate discount rate. The service cost is $150,000 for 2011 and $200,000 for 2012. Year-end funding is $160,000 for 2011 and $170,000 for 2012. No assumptions or estimates were revised during 2011.

Calculate each of the following amounts as of both December 31, 2011, and December 31, 2012:
1. Projected benefit obligation
2. Plan assets
3. Pension expense
4. Net pension asset or net pension liability
