Rate of selling expenses to net sales 20%
Accounts receivable turnover 8 times per year
Inventory turnover 6 times per year

Ratio of accounts receivable to accounts payable: 1.5-to-1
Ratio of working capital to stockholders’ equity: 1-to-1.6
Debt/Equity ratio: 1-to-2

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.
Preferred, 6% nonparticipating, $100 per share par value, issued at a 10% premium.
Market value per share of common at December 31, 2004: $78.
Preferred dividends paid in 2004: $3,000.
Times interest earned in 2004: 33.

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.

All purchases and sales were on account. Assume the company uses direct write-off method to account for uncollectible accounts.

Required: Prepare in good form the balance sheet and income statement for the year ending December 31, 2004. Please show all calculations.
