    Available for sale

    Held to maturity
  6. Valuation of trading and available for sale securities
    • Reported at fair value (mark to market)
    • maintain two general ledger acounts (original cost and valuation account) and BS shows one net amount
  7. Trading securities unrealized gains and losses
    Included in earnings and shown on income statement

  16. To consolidate or not to consolidate? That is the question...
    • 1. Consolidate all majority owned subs (>50% of voting interest is owned by parent)
    • 2. No consolidation when control is not with owners (under legal reorg or when control is sub is with trustee)
    • 3. In vertical chain start at bottom and work up (ex. consolidate 3rd co into 2nd co, the 2nd co into first)
  17. Consolidate different year ends, GAAP vs. IFRS
    • GAAP=significant transactions during gap period require disclosure
    • IFRS=subs fin stmts must be adjusted for significant transactions during gap period.
  18. Degree of control, how does investor account for investment?
    • 1. Cost method, no consolidation=no significant influence (generally <20% control)

    • Use equity method now, and retrospectively adjust previous periods that cost was used.
    • Apply the new method to the prior periods investment
  31. Consolidated financial statements

    • 2. Measurement principle=each recognized A and L and any NCI is measured at fair value at aquisition date
  33. Recording the investment under the aquisition method
    aquisition paid with cash Journal Entry

    • D to subs APIC
    • D to subs RE
  37. IN adjustment
    • Parent company eliminates their investment in sub account

    • Journal Entry
    • C to Investment in sub
    • C to NCI
  38. BIG adjustment
    • Adjust subs old BS to fair value. Adjust for full 100% of fair value even if there is NCI
    • Record subs identifiable intangible assets at fair value, even if no amount was incurred to acquire them in acquisition
    • Goodwill is created based on excess of fair value of sub (acquisition cost +and NCI) over fair value of subs assets. If there is a shortage it is a gain.

    • Journal Entries
    • D to BS accounts to bring assets up to fair value
    • D to identifiable intangible assets at fair value
    • D to goodwill (if there is a surplus) (C to gain if there is a shortage)

    • If fin stmts after acquisition date is used, convert to acquisition date.

    • Beginning RE (acquisition date)
    • Add income
    • Subtract dividends

    • Bond issue costs capitalized and amortized (D to bond issue costs)
  41. NCI what and where?
    • Portion of subs equity that parent does not own
    • Reported at 100% fair value in equity of BS separate from parents equity
    • Computation=fair value of sub * NCI %=amt of NCI interest reported in equity
  42. NCI after acquisition
    Accounted for using the equity method. Can have (-) balance if losses allocated exceed the account balance.

    • Beginning NCI
    • Add NCI share of sub NI
    • Subtract NCI share of sub div
    • Ending NCI balance
  43. 3 things consolidated income statement shows
    separately states consolidated NI, NI attributable to NCI, and NI attributable to parent
  44. NI attributable to NCI
    • subs income
    • (subs expenses)
    • subs NI
    • x NCI %
    • NI attributable to NCI (goes to NCI RE in general ledger)
  45. Full goodwill method
    • GAAP, but can elect under IFRS
    • NCI on BS=fair value of sub*NCI %
    • goodwill=fair value of sub-fair value of subs net assets
  46. Partial goodwill method
    • preferred under IFRS
    • NCI=fair value of subs net identifiable assets*NCI %
    • goodwill=acquisition cost-fair value of subs net assets acquired.
  47. BS adjustments "BIG"
    • BS records are adjusted to fair value
    • Identifiable intangible assets recorded at fair value
    • Goodwill recognized for excess of fair value of sub over fair value of subs net assets. If fair value of sub is less than fair value of net assets gain is recognized.
  48. In process R&D
    • Recognized as intangible asset separate from goodwill, not written off right away.
    • Expense continuing R&D to complete project.
    • Later
    • if successful=amortize in process R&D
    • if not successful=write off in process R&D
  49. BS adjustments
    allocate acquisition cost to fair value of 100% of BS
  50. Identifiable intangible assets
    • allocate remaining acquisition cost to fair value of 100% of the assets acquired.
    • Finite lives=amortize
    • Indefinite lives=one step impairment test
  51. Goodwill
    • Any remaining acqisition cost is allocated to goodwill
    • don't amortize, test for impairment. When impaired, expensed on income statement
    • Partial or full goodwill method only different when parent acquires less than 100%
  52. Adjustments to consolidated CFS when sub is acquired
    • 1. net cash spent or received reported in investment section
    • 2. A and L of sub on acquisition date added to parents A and L at beginning of year to determine change in cash during period
  53. Issues on consolidated CFS
    • div paid to NCI s/h shown in financing section. Div paid to parent not reported
    • total NI (attributable to parent and NCI interest) used
  54. Step acquisition (to or from control)
    non control to control=remeasure previously held equity to fair value. shows up on income statement

    more or less control=equity transaction treat like treasury stock transaction (no affect on IS, adjust APIC)
