They are dated January 1, 2006, and mature January 1, 2011, with interest receivable December 31 of each year. The company uses the effective-interest method to allocate unamortized discount or premium. The bonds are classified as available-for-sale. The fair value of the bonds at December 31 of each year is as follows:

- 2006 $320,500
- 2007 $309,000
- 2008 $308,000

On January 1, 2007, Jamona Corp. signed a 5-year, noncancelable lease for a machine. The terms of the lease called for Jamona to make annual payments of $8,668 at the beginning of each year, starting January 1, 2007. The machine has an estimated useful life of 6 years and a $5,000 unguaranteed residual value. The machine reverts to the lessor at the end of the lease term. Jamona uses the straight-line method of depreciation for all of its plant assets. Jamona's incremental borrowing rate is 10%, and the lessor's implicit rate is unknown.
