Concord Corporation has \$4080000 of 7% convertible bonds outstanding. Each \$1,000 bond is convertible into 30 shares of \$30 par value common stock. The bonds pay interest on January 31 and July 31. On July 31, 2021, the holders of \$1220000 bonds exercised the conversion privilege. On that date the market price of the bonds was 106 and the market price of the common stock was \$37. The total unamortized bond premium at the date of conversion was \$271000. Concord should record, as a result of this conversion, a

 A credit of \$203300 to Paid-in Capital in Excess of Par.
 B credit of \$177700 to Paid-in Capital in Excess of Par.
 C credit of \$86720 to Premium on Bonds Payable.
 D loss of \$12200.

Par value of bonds = \$1,220,000

Par value of 1 bond = \$1,000

Number of bonds = Par value of bonds/Par value of 1 bond =

= 1,220,000/1,000

= 1,220

1 bond is convertible into 30 shares.

Number of common shares to be issued = Number of bonds x 30

= 1,220 x 30

= 36,600

Par value of 1 common share = \$30

Amount to be credited to common stock = Number of common shares to be issued x Par value of 1 common share

= 36,600 x 30

= \$1,098,000

Unamortized bond premium on bonds to be converted = \$271,000 x 1,220,000/4,080,000

= \$81,300

Amount to be credited to paid in capital in excess of par = Par value of bonds+Unamortized bond premium on bonds to be converted-Amount to be credited to common stock

= 1,220,000+81,300-1,098,000

= \$203,300

 A credit of \$203300 to Paid-in Capital in Excess of Par.
