Part I – 18 points On March 15, 2000, Coca Cola (KO) purchased 10,000 shares of class A common stock in Coca- Cola Bottlers (CCE). Assume that this is the first share purchase KO has made in CCE. CCE has authorized 10,000,000 class A shares of common stock, and it has issued 2,000,000 of these shares. Class A shares of CCE have a par value of $0.25 per share. KO paid $15 per share to acquire the 10,000 shares. At the end of fiscal 2000 (Dec 31, 2000) the share price of CCE had risen to $17.50. In April, 2001, KO sold 2,000 of its shares in CCE at the prevailing market rate of $20/share. At the end of 2001, CCE declared and paid a cash dividend of $0.30/share. At the end of fiscal 2001 the price of CCE had fallen to $14. From the above information (and assuming that KO does not hold these securities for trading purposes) answer the following questions: 1. What was the journal entry for the share purchase on March 15, 2000? (2 points) DR Investment in Marketable Securities: Available for Sale 150,000 CR Cash 150,000 10,000 shares at $15/share acquired. 2. Would this journal entry have been different if KO had bought 800,000 shares of CCE? Explain your answer in no more than 2 sentences. (2 points) Yes. This would be more than 20% ownership but less than 50% so would be an active investment that would be accounted for using the equity method. 3. What journal entries would be made on December 31, 2000? (3 points) DR Allowance for mark to market 25,000 CR Comprehensive income unrealised gain/loss 25,000 $2.50 per share unrealized gain. This is available for sale so unrealized gains go to comprehensive income NOT income. 10,000 shares at $2.50/share. Name on the DR account is not critical as long as it is clear it is an asset
