I don't know about that company specifically, but an equity investment would have that effect.
When you, co-owners or investors make an equity investment in your
company, you increase the amount of additional paid-in capital under
owner's equity. Because your company's balance sheet must balance, the
cash used to pay for the equity investment gets recorded as cash under
short-term assets. If an investor contributed an asset, then the
asset's value gets recorded under long-term assets.
You make a $50,000 equity investment in your company. You record this
as a $50,000 increase in additional paid-in capital under owner's
equity. You also record a $50,000 increase in cash under assets. An
investor also contributed a $30,000 equity investment in the form of a
used printing press. You record this investment in two locations on
the balance sheet. You increase additional paid-in capital by $30,000
and add printing press, $30,000 as a long-term asset. The net effect
of both investments on the balance sheet is an increase in both total
assets and owner's equity of $80,000.
