III. CASE ANALYSIS (C)

Disregarding the marital complications, do you suppose that the partners would have been able to receive the proportional share of the equity determined in Question 2 if the partnership was dissolved on March 30, 2010? Why?

IV. SUMMARY
On March 31, 2010, the partnership that have been organized to operate the Lone Pine Cafe was dissolved under unusual circumstances, and in connection to its dissolution, a balance sheet became necessary. We prepared a balance sheet as of November 1, 2009 having the three partners invested equally in agreement of equal shares in the equity.

IV. SUMMARY
At the time the partners also signed a one-year lease to Lone Pine Cafe, bought equipment and supplies inventory from their investments and bank loans. Shortly after starting the restaurant, they found that the business was not going well. We also prepared a balance sheet as of March 30, 2010 after Mrs. Antoine found out that her husband and Mrs. Landers went missing along with the partnership's cash register and its contents. The partnership was dissolved.

IV. SUMMARY

We found in the balance sheet that:

The partnership would not have been able to receive their proportional shares of the equity.
