Holdings of 20% ­50%  ­ ­>Assume that the investor can exert signi<icant in<luence over the investee >>Use the EQUITY METHOD Holdings of >50%  ­ ­ ­> Subsidiary (essentially), covered in further accounting classes ***But it is possible to have less than 20% holding and still have a signi<icant in<luence. If there is signi<icant in<luence, use the EQUITY METHOD… if not, use FAIR VALUE METHOD. Fair Value Method >> Adjust the investment account to Fair Market Value at each Balance sheet date. >> Recognize corresponding unrealized holding gain/loss: :::If investment classi<ied as "trading" (will tell you in problem) * [[planning to hold short term and pro<it from <luctuations]] * Gain/loss goes on income statement ::If investment classi<ied as "available for sale" * They may hold it for years so we don’t want the <luctuations to <low through the income statement… will bypass this… * … and the gain of loss becomes part of other comprehensive income, and is recorded directly in the SE section of the balance sheet. * * * * Investent recorded at Fair Value each B/S date Corresponding holding gain/loss goes on I/S if trading, and goes on B/S if available for sale security. Dividends received/declared are recorded on the investor's income statement as Dividend Income. If a security is SOLD… a realized loss is recorded on the income statement (realized because now we have actually gotten rid of the security and got cash in exchange) Equity Method >>Acknowledges the economic relationship between investor and investee >>Adjust the investment account as the net assets of the investee company change [[as the EQUITY of the investee company changes]] +  ­  ­  ­ Investment Acct Cost Investor's % share of investee's NI Investor's % share of investee's NI Dividends from Investee Amort of excess paid over BV of investmt. $ X $ X **Remember: DON'T amortize goodwill! <$ X> <$ X> *Don't treat as income.. <$ X> treat as a reduction of the equity account, because ((^Decrease to the investment account.. Brings it more net assets of the company in line with the book value of the investment.)) have gone down.

Example 1: * On 1/1/09, Co. A bought 40% of the O/S C/S of Co. B for $400,000.00 * At that date, Co. B had net assets with a book value of $700,000.00 * All assets and liabilities had a BV=FMV, except for the building with a fair value>book value of $80,000. * The building had a remaining life of 8 years. * For 2009, Co, B had net income of $160,000.00, and they paid total dividends of $125,000.00 * At 12/31/09, Co. A's investment had a FMV of $425,000.00 >>>Prepare all journal entries for the investment during 2009. Journal Entries 1/1/09: Investment in Company B $400,000 *Use Equity Cash $400,000 Method  ­ ­ ­> 12/31/09: Cash $50,000 * stake >20% Investmt. in Co. B * $50,000 *Total Div was $125,00; Company B entitled to 40% 12/31/09: Investment in Company B $64,000 Rev from invstmt. $64,000 *Equity in NI: NI is $160,000, so x 40%… =$64,000) Next, <igure out if there is an excess…. [[Company paid 400,000 for investment, when the assets had a book value of 700,000.. If they bought 40%, they shouldv'e paid $280,000. Why didn't they?? Do an analysis.]] *Know that all assets have FMV=BV except building *DON'T AMORTIZE GW 12/31/09: *FMV of $425,00 never enter the picture. Cost of Investment $400,000.00 BV of Investment $280,000.00 *40% of $700k Total Excess: $180,000.00 Allocation of Excess Bldg FMV>BV(40% of 80k) $32,000.00 Unrecorded GW (plug) $88,000.00 $120,000.00 Revenue from Invstmt. 4,000 Invstmt in Co. B (($32,000.00/8 years = $4,000/year)) $4,000.00 Investment 12/31/09: $400,000  ­ $50,000 + $64,000  ­ $4,000 = $410,000 Revenue from Investment on 2009 I/S: $64,000  ­ $4,000 = $60,000 **To <ind the change in the investment account over the period… ending balance is $410,000, investment revenue is $60,000, and there is a $10,000 increase in the account. Example 2: Same as Example 1, except Company A was not able to exercise signi<icant in<luence over Company B. Company A's 2009 J/E's: 1/1/09: 12/31/09: Invstmt in Co.
