1 AF3110 Intermediate Accounting 1 2009/10 Semester 2 Topic 10 Question 1 (Chapter14 Q15) (a) Discuss the recognition and initial measurement criteria for intangible assets contained in HKAS 38 Intangible Assets . (b) On 1 July 20X6, Heywood, a publicly listed company, was finally successfully in acquiring the entire share capital of Fast Trak. The terms of the bid by Heywood had been improved several times as rival bidders also made offers for Fast Trak. The terms of the initial bid by Heywood were: 20 million $1 ordinary shares in Heyw000d. Each share had a stock market price of $3.50 immediately prior to the bid; a cash element of $15 million. The final bid that was eventually accepted on 1 July 20X6 by Fast Trak ' s shareholders had improved the cash offer to $25 million and included a redeemable loan note of a further $25 million that will be redeemed on 30 June 20Y0.

However, as Fast Trak is the only company that can mine the ore, the directors of Heywoold have estimated the licence to be worth $9 million. The mine itself has been included as part of Fast Trak's property, plant and equipment.
