    On January 1, 2008, Crocker Company issued 10-year, $2,000,000 face value, 6% bonds, at par. Each $1,000 bond is convertible into 15 shares of Crocker common stock. Crocker's net income in 2008 was $300,000, and its tax rate was 40%. The company had 100,000 shares of common stock outstanding throughout 2008. None of the bonds were converted in 2008.
