schweitzdm I am not quite sure about what is at play here. Anyone care to explain? It seems so simple, I must be over thinking it
bgbigelow The shareholders equity should be previous period equity + net income minus dividends. Since the total reported is 115 M then there must have been an additional 7 million not reported in net income that shows up in shareholders equity.
tomalot $8m? 7+8 =15
farhan92 end equity=begin equity +ni -divs
115 = 100 +15 -7
115=108
the difference of 7 not included must be reported in comp inc.
