Summary: 
It is known that a family of p-ary bent sequences, whose elements take values of GF (p) with a prime p, possesses low periodic correlation properties and high linear span. Firstly such a family is shown to consist of balanced sequences in the sense that the frequency of appearances in one period is the same for each nonzero element and once less for zero element. Secondly the exact distribution of the periodic correlation values is given for the family.
