P 18–13 Quasi reorganization (based on Appendix 18)
A new CEO was hired to revive the floundering Champion Chemical Corporation. The company had endured operating losses for several years, but confidence was emerging that better times were ahead. The board of directors and shareholders approved a quasi reorganization for the corporation. The reorganization included devaluing inventory for obsolescence by $105 million and increasing land by $5 million. Immediately prior to the restatement, at December 31, 2011, Champion Chemical Corporation’s balance sheet appeared as follows (in condensed form):
Balance Sheet
At December 31, 2009

Cash $ 20
Receivables 40

Buildings and equipment (net) 90

Liabilities $240
Common stock (320 million shares at $1 par) 320
Additional paid-in capital 60
Retained earnings (deficit) (200)
