Subsidiary issues additional stock under different assumptions

Primetime Corporation owns 2/3 (600,000 shares) of the outstanding $1 par common stock of Satellite company on January 1, 2006. In order to raise cash to finance an expansion program, Satellite issues an additional 100,000 shares of its common stock for $5 per share of January 3, 2006. Satellite's stockholder's equity before and after the new stock issuance is as follows:

Before Issuance After Issuance
Common stock, $1 par 900,000 1,000,000
Additional paid-in-capital 600,000 1,000,000
Retained earnings 600,000 600,000
Total stockholder's equity 2,100,000 2,600,000
