Notes to Financial Statements:
1. Long-Term Lease. Under the terms of a 5-year, noncancelable lease for a building, Allen is obligated to make annual rental payments of $40,000 in each of the next 4 fiscal years.
2. Pension Plan. Substantially all employees are covered by Allen’s defined benefit pension plan. Pension expense is equal to the total of pension benefits accrued and paid to retired employees during the year. Because it is a defined benefit plan that is paid every year, no pension liability exists.
3. Patent. The patent had an estimated remaining life of 10 years at the time of purchase. Allen’s patent was purchased from Apex Corporation on January 1, 2016, for $250,000.
4. Deferred Income Tax Payable. The entire balance in the Deferred Income Tax Payable account arose from tax-exempt municipal bonds that were held during the previous fiscal year, giving rise to a difference between tax-able income and reported net earnings for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2016. The deferred liability amount was calculated on the basis of past tax rates.
5. Warrants. On January 1, 2015, one common stock warrant was issued to shareholders of record for each common share owned. An additional share of common stock is to be issued upon exercise of 10 stock warrants and receipt of an amount equal to par value. For the 6 months ended October 31, 2016, the average market value for Allen’s common stock was $5 per share and no warrants had yet been exercised.
6. Contingent Liability. On October 31, 2016, Allen was contingently liable for product warranties in an amount estimated to aggregate $75,000.
