Ratio of accounts receivable to accounts payable: 1.5-to-1
Ratio of working capital to stockholders’ equity: 1-to-1.6

The corporation had a net income of $120,000 for 2004, which resulted in earnings of $5.20 per share of common stock. No common or preferred shares were sold or bought back during 2004. The corporation does not have minority share of earnings, equity income or non-recurring items. Additional information includes the following:

Capital stock authorized, issued (all in 1970), and outstanding:
Common, $10 per share per share, issued at 10% premium.

Market value per share of common at December 31, 2004: $78.
Preferred dividends paid in 2004: $3,000.

The amounts of the following were the same at December 31, 2004, as at January 1, 2004: inventory, accounts receivable, 5% bonds payable – due 2013, total assets and total stockholders’ equity.

Assuming there is no income tax expense and specific depreciation expense, but still need the accumulated depreciation for balance sheet.

Administration expense, accrued expense payable and prepaid expenses are all backed in numbers.
