Quail Corporation was created in 2000 through contributions from Kasha ($900,000) and Frank ($100,000). In a transaction qualifying as a reorganization, Quail exchanges all of its assets currently valued at $1.8 million (basis of $1.2 million) for 12,000 shares of Covey Corporation stock valued at $1.7 million plus $100,000 in Covey bonds.
