The bank loan is a financial liability for Lanni. (Lannis IOU is the banks financial asset). The cash Lanni receives is a financial asset. The new financial asset created is Lannis promissory note (that is, Lannis IOU to the bank).

Lanni gives the real asset (the software) to Microsoft in exchange for a financial asset, 1,500 shares of stock in Microsoft. If Microsoft issues new shares in order to pay Lanni, then this would represent the creation of new financial assets.
Lanni exchanges one financial asset (1,500 shares of stock) for another (120,000). Lanni gives a financial asset (50,000 cash) to the bank and gets back another financial asset (its IOU). The loan is destroyed in the transaction, since it is retired when paid off and no longer exists. 3.
