195.If there is no change in the number of shares authorized and issued from one year to the next, but there is a change in the number of shares outstanding on those same dates, how would you explain that change?

 

 

196.In its 20x8 annual report, Gamma Company indicated that the number of common shares held in the treasury decreased from 45,546,171 in 20x7 to 3,397,381 in 20x8. The following also was reported:

 

By Board authorization, effective December 31, 20x8 the Company cancelled 50 million shares of common stock held in treasury. As a result of the cancellation, common stock decreased by $125 million, additional paid-in capital decreased by $228 million, and retained earnings decreased by $3,119 million.

 

The shares canceled or retired represent almost 25 percent of the shares of common stock issued by Gamma. Explain the accounting for the treasury shares by Gamma. Did the company buy any treasury shares during the year? Prepare the entry in journal form that was made to record the cancellation or retirement of the treasury shares. At what average price were the treasury shares purchased, and at what average price were they originally issued? What do you think was management's reason for purchasing the treasury shares? (Omit explanation.)
