Preparing a Schedule for the Tulsa Corporation

Tulsa Corporation purchased 15 percent of the common stock of Holden Company on January 1, 2002, for $525,900, the stock's underlying book value. During 2002 and 2003, Holden reported net income of $70,000 and $84,000, respectively, and paid dividends of $20,000 for each of the 2 years. On January 2, 2004, Tulsa purchased additional shares of Holden for $1,200,000 when the book value of Holden's net assets equaled $3,620,000. Any differential associated with the 2004 acquisition is attributable to a patent with a 10-year remaining life. After the purchase of the additional Holden shares, Tulsa owned 40 percent of Holden and could exercise significant influence. For the year ended 2004, Holden reported net income of $200,000 and paid dividends of $80,000.
