issued any new stocks during the month of June.
2. Retained Earnings: There is an increase in retained earnings as of June 30 by $7,935. This increase is
the result of the difference between net income of June and dividends.
Question 3 Retained Earnings
Retained earnings do not increase by the amount of net income of June as of June 30 because not only was there net income to add on to beginning earnings but dividends were declared. Therefore, to calculate retained earnings for June 30:
Retained Earnings -June 30 = Beginning Retained Earnings -June 1 + Net Income – (Dividends)
= 221,511 + 19,635 – (11,700)
In summary, retained earnings increase by the difference between net income and dividends.
Net Income – Dividends=> 19,635-11,700 =>7,935
Where the difference between retained earnings as of June 30 and June 1:
229,446 - 221,511 = 7,935
Therefore retained earnings as of June 30 has increased by $7,935.
Question 4 The value of Maynard Company
By definition, shareholder’s equity defines the company’s net worth. In this case, Maynard Company has a total of $619, 446 shareholder’s equity meaning that the company has made that amount of profit after all dividends have been distributed.
In my opinion, after analyzing Maynard Company’s balance sheet, the company is well worth $619,446.
Although, if it was up to my decision, the company would be a bit less worth since it has liabilities but not as much as it owns shareholder equity. So, I would subtract $62,442 of liabilities from $619,446 of shareholder’s equity $557,004.
