2. Events’ impact on assets, liabilities and equity:
a) Paying dividends is such an example as it decreases both cash (assets) and retained earnings (equity).
b)

Taking out a bank loan increases cash (assets) and increases loans payable (liabilities).

d)

Collecting cash on credit sales increases cash and decreases accounts receivable.

Equity(true) = Assets(mv) − Liabilities
= $814,527,000 – $341,214,000 = $473,313,000
b) In the case that PA and NY forbid development of the fields for which DU has sole rights, the market value of
DU’s equity would be zero.
