Question 1 (20 marks)

Patterson Ltd was registered on 18 March 2017, as a company with a constitution limiting the shares that could be offered to; 4 000 000 Ordinary A shares and 2 000 000 non-voting Ordinary B shares. The company issued a prospectus dated 12 May inviting the public to apply for 3 000 000 Ordinary A class shares at $2.50 per share. The terms of the shares on issue are $1.00 on application, $1.00 on allotment and $0.50 to be called within six months of allotment.

If the issue is oversubscribed the directors will make a pro-rata issue of shares and the excess application money will be applied to allotment and calls before any refunds will be given.

On 15 May the directors also decided to issue 1 000 000 non voting Ordinary B shares as fully paid to the promoters for a payment of $2.00 per share.

On 30 June applications closed. Applications for 4 500 000 shares in total had been received with applicants for 1 500 000 shares paying $2.50 and the remainder paying only the application fee.

On 4 July the shares were allotted, with all allotment money owed, paid by the 30 July.

On 22 July share issue costs of $35,000 for the Ordinary A shares. The share issue costs related to legal expenses associated with the share issue and fees associated with the drafting and advertising of the prospectus and share issue.

The call on the Ordinary A shares was made on 25 August and due by 30 September. All call money was received except for the call on 20 000 shares. The directors met and forfeited the shares on 8 October. On 23 October the $2.50 shares were reissued at $2.20 fully paid to $2.50. Costs associated with reissuing the forfeited shares totalled $8,000. The money was refunded to the defaulting shareholders on 10 November.

The directors announced on 23 November that they were to make a further issue of 1 000 000 Ordinary A shares in 8 months time for $4.00 per share. They issued a call option on these shares, with $0.60 payable by 15 December. All options were sold.
