    On December 31, 2009, Otter Company had investments in trading securities as follows:                                                                       COST                      MARKET VALUE      Man Company                                        1,000,000                        1,300,000      Kemo Company                                        900,000                        1,100,000      Fenn Company                                       1,100,000                           900,000                                                                     3,000,000                        3,300,000 Otter's December 31, 2009 balance sheet should report the following trading securities at:

    • A.

      3,000,000

    • B.

      2,900,000

    • C.

      3,300,000

    • D.

      2,800,000

    Correct Answer
    C. 3,300,000
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 3,300,000. This is because the balance sheet should report the trading securities at their market value, which is the value at which they could be sold in the market. In this case, the market values of the investments in Man Company, Kemo Company, and Fenn Company are higher than their cost, so they should be reported at their market value of 1,300,000, 1,100,000, and 900,000 respectively. The total market value of the investments is 3,300,000.

    On January 1, 2009, Fredo Company purchased marketable equity securities to be held as "trading" for P4,000,000. The company also paid commission to the stockbroker in the amount of P100,000. No securities were sold during 2009. The market value of the equity securities on December 31, 2009 is P4,500,000.What amount of unrealized gain on these securities should be reported in the 2009 income statement? 

    • A.

      0

    • B.

      300,000

    • C.

      400,000

    • D.

      500,000

    Correct Answer
    D. 500,000
    Explanation
    The unrealized gain on these securities should be reported as 500,000 in the 2009 income statement. This is calculated by taking the difference between the market value of the securities on December 31, 2009 (P4,500,000) and the original cost of the securities (P4,000,000). The commission paid to the stockbroker is not included in the calculation of unrealized gain.

    On January 1, 2009, Trix Company purchased marketable equity securities for P5,000,000 to be held as "available for sale". The company also paid P200,000 in the form of transaction costs. The equity securities had a market value of P4,600,000 on December 31, 2009. No securities were sold during 2009.What amount of unrealized loss on these securities should be reported in the 2009 statement of changes in equity?

    • A.

      200,000

    • B.

      400,000

    • C.

      600,000

    • D.

      0

    Correct Answer
    C. 600,000
    Explanation
    The unrealized loss on these securities should be reported as P600,000 in the 2009 statement of changes in equity. This is calculated by taking the original cost of the securities (P5,000,000) plus the transaction costs (P200,000), and subtracting the market value of the securities on December 31, 2009 (P4,600,000). The resulting difference of P600,000 represents the unrealized loss on these securities.

    Rose Company was organized on January 1, 2009. At December 31, 2009, Rose had the following investment portfolio of marketable equity securities:                                                        TRADING                       AVAILABLE FOR SALE     Aggregate Cost                           3,000,000                                4,500,000     Aggregate Market Value             2,400,000                                3,700,000     Net Unrealized Loss                       600,000                                   800,000All of the declines are judged to be temporary. What amount of unrealized loss should be shown as component of income and shareholders' equity?

    • A.

      Income: 600,000 Shareholder's equity: 800,000

    • B.

      Income: 800,000 Shareholder's equity: 600,000

    • C.

      Income: 1,400,000 Shareholder's equity: 0

    • D.

      Income: 0 Shareholder's equity: 1,400,000

    Correct Answer
    A. Income: 600,000 Shareholder's equity: 800,000
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Income: 600,000 Shareholder's equity: 800,000. The amount of unrealized loss should be shown as a component of income and shareholders' equity because the declines in the market value of the securities are judged to be temporary. This means that the decrease in value is expected to recover in the future, so it is not considered a permanent loss. Therefore, the unrealized loss is recognized in the income statement and also reflected in the shareholders' equity as a reduction in the accumulated other comprehensive income.

    During 2009, Scotch Company purchased marketable equity securities to be held as "available for sale". Pertinent data follow:     SECURITY                         COST                            MARKET VALUE at 12/31/09           D                                360,000                                         400,000           E                                800,000                                         600,000           F                             1,800,000                                       1,860,000                                          2,960,000                                       2,860,000Scotch appropriately carries these securities at market value.

    • C.

      100,000

    • D.

      0

    Correct Answer
    D. 0
    Explanation
    Since Scotch appropriately carries these securities at market value, there is no unrealized loss to be recognized on the income statement. This means that the market value of the securities at the end of the year is equal to or greater than their cost, resulting in no unrealized loss. Therefore, the correct answer is 0.

    On its December 31, 2008 balance sheet, Fry Company appropriately reported a P100,000 unrealized loss. There was no change during 2009 in the composition of Fry's portfolio of marketable equity securities held as "available for sale". Pertinent data are as follows:   SECURITY                         COST                            MARKET VALUE at 12/31/09                   A                             1,200,000                                     1,300,000          B                                900,000                                        500,000          C                             1,600,000                                     1,500,000                                         3,700,000                                     3,300,000What amount of loss on these securities should be included in Fry's statement of shareholders' equity for the year ended December 31, 2009?

      300,000

    • D.

      400,000

    Correct Answer
    D. 400,000
    Explanation
    The amount of loss on these securities that should be included in Fry's statement of shareholders' equity for the year ended December 31, 2009 is 400,000. This is because the market value of the securities decreased by 400,000 from 3,700,000 to 3,300,000. Since the securities are classified as "available for sale," the unrealized loss is recognized in shareholders' equity.

    • C.

      Unrealized gain of P100,000

    • D.

      Unrealized gain of P130,000

    Correct Answer
    C. Unrealized gain of P100,000
    Explanation
    The information provided shows that the market value of security A increased from P2,300,000 to P2,450,000, resulting in an unrealized gain of P150,000. However, the market value of security B decreased from P1,820,000 to P1,800,000, resulting in an unrealized loss of P20,000. Therefore, the net unrealized gain for the year ended December 31, 2009, is P150,000 - P20,000 = P130,000.

    • D.

      4,000,000

    Correct Answer
    D. 4,000,000
    Explanation
    The historical cost of the long-term investment in available for sale securities is $4,000,000. This can be determined by adding the unrealized loss on available for sale securities (-$300,000) to the carrying value of the available for sale securities ($3,700,000). The carrying value represents the historical cost of the investment. Therefore, the historical cost is $4,000,000.

    Explanation
    The gain or loss on the sale of security B on July 31, 2010, is 500,000 loss. This is calculated by subtracting the cost of security B (1,000,000) from the amount received from the sale (1,100,000). Since the amount received is higher than the cost, there is a loss of 500,000.

    Lava sold 10,000 shares of Company B stock for P130 per share, resulting in a sale price of P1,300,000. The cost of these shares was P1,700,000. Therefore, Lava incurred a loss of P400,000 (P1,700,000 - P1,300,000). Additionally, Lava also incurred P50,000 in brokerage commission and taxes. Therefore, the total loss that Lava should report is P450,000 (P400,000 + P50,000).

    Correct Answer
    D. 500,000

    • C.

      300,000 loss

    • D.

      500,000 loss

    Correct Answer
    B. 500,000 gain
    Explanation
    On January 31, 2010, Cage Company sold Security R for P3,500,000. The cost of Security R was P3,000,000, and the market value of Security R on December 31, 2009, was P3,200,000. Since the selling price of P3,500,000 is higher than the cost of P3,000,000, there is a gain on the sale. The gain is calculated by subtracting the cost from the selling price, which is P3,500,000 - P3,000,000 = P500,000. Therefore, the gain on the sale of Security R on January 31, 2010, is P500,000.

    • C.

      300,000

    • D.

      200,000

    Correct Answer
    B. 600,000
    Explanation
    The unrealized loss on these securities should be reported as 600,000 in the 2010 statement of changes in equity. This is because the market value of Security R on December 31, 2010 was 3,200,000, which is 600,000 less than its cost of 3,800,000 (the original cost of 3,000,000 plus the 800,000 unrealized loss from 2009). Since the security was sold for 3,500,000 on January 31, 2010, the unrealized loss of 600,000 needs to be reported in the 2010 statement of changes in equity.

The cost of the securities and their market value on December 31, 2009 follow:SECURITY                         COST                            MARKET VALUE       A                              650,000                                750,000       B                           1,000,000                                540,000       C                           2,200,000                             2,260,000At the beginning of 2009, Giant had a zero balance in the market adjustment for trading securities account. Before any adjustment related to these trading securities, Giant had net income of P3,000,000. What is the net income after making any necessary trading security adjustment?

    • A.

    • B.

      2,700,000

    • C.

      3,000,000

    • D.

      3,300,000

    Correct Answer
    B. 2,700,000
    Explanation
    The net income after making any necessary trading security adjustment is 2,700,000. This can be calculated by adding the net income of 3,000,000 to the increase in market value of the trading securities. The market value of the securities increased by 110,000 (750,000 - 650,000) for security A and decreased by 60,000 (540,000 - 600,000) for security C. Therefore, the total increase in market value is 50,000 (110,000 - 60,000). Adding this to the net income gives us a total of 2,700,000.

    On January 1, 2009, Hemingway Company acquired 200,000 ordinary shares of Universe Company for P9,000,000. At the time of purchase, Universe Company had outstanding 800,000 shares with a book value of P36,000,000. On December 31, 2009, the following events took place:   *   Universe Company reported net income of P1,800,000 for the calendar year 2009.   *   Hemingway Company received from Universe Company a dividend of P0.75 per ordinary share.   *   The market value of Universe Company share had temporarily declined to P40.The investment in Universe Company is classified as available for sale. What is the carrying value of the investment on December 31, 2009?

    • A.

      8,000,000

    • B.

      9,000,000

    • C.

      9,300,000

    • D.

      9,450,000

    Correct Answer
    A. 8,000,000
    Explanation
    The carrying value of the investment on December 31, 2009, is P8,000,000. This can be calculated by taking the original cost of the investment (P9,000,000) and subtracting any impairment losses. Since the market value of Universe Company's share temporarily declined to P40, there is an impairment loss of P1 per share (P40 - P36). Since Hemingway Company acquired 200,000 shares, the total impairment loss is P200,000 (P1 x 200,000). Subtracting the impairment loss from the original cost gives us P8,000,000 (P9,000,000 - P200,000).

    Explanation
    The trading securities should be reported at $1,450,000 in the December 31, 2009 balance sheet. This is because the market value of the Company A shares is $825,000 and the market value of the Company B shares is $625,000, which adds up to $1,450,000. The cost of the securities is not relevant in determining their reported value on the balance sheet.

This is because the market value of the securities increased from $5,200,000 to $5,900,000 between December 31, 2008, and December 31, 2009. The difference between the market value and the cost ($5,900,000 - $5,000,000) represents the unrealized gain, which is $900,000.

    Correct Answer
    B. 200,000
    Explanation
    The unrealized gain in December 31, 2009 shareholders' equity should be $200,000. This is calculated by subtracting the market value of the equity investments at December 31, 2008 ($2,400,000) from the market value at December 31, 2009 ($3,200,000). The difference of $800,000 represents the increase in value of the investments, but since the investments are classified as "available for sale," only the unrealized gain is reported in shareholders' equity. Therefore, the correct answer is $200,000.

The aggregate lower of cost or market value applied to each security is $3,500,000. Since the market declines are judged to be "other than temporary," Banquet Company should report a total loss of $800,000 on these securities in its 2009 income statement.

On such date, a reliable measure of fair value of the securities is no longer available. The market value of the securities was P4,500,000 on December 31, 2008. In its 2009 statement of changes in equity, Quezon should report unrealized loss on these securities at:

    D. 500,000
    Explanation
    Quezon Company should report an unrealized loss of 500,000 on these securities in its 2009 statement of changes in equity. This is because when the available for sale securities were reclassified as nonmarketable equity securities on December 31, 2009, a reliable measure of fair value was no longer available. The market value of the securities on December 31, 2008, was 4,500,000, which is lower than the original cost of 5,000,000. Therefore, the difference of 500,000 represents the unrealized loss that should be reported.

    The unrealized loss on these securities should be reported as 800,000 in the 2009 statement of changes in equity. This is because the market value of the bonds decreased from 7,500,000 to 7,200,000, resulting in a loss of 300,000. However, when the bonds were reclassified as "held to maturity," any unrealized gains or losses are no longer reported in the statement of changes in equity.

The carrying value of the bonds after amortization of discount using the effective interest method was P4,680,000, which means there is an unrealized gain of P520,000 (P5,200,000 - P4,680,000).

    • C.

    • D.

      3,000,000

    Correct Answer
    A. 130,000
    Explanation
    Peter Company should report an income of 130,000 related to the investments in its income statement for 2009. This is because the investment in Dixie Company represents 30% of the outstanding preference share capital, and Dixie Company reported a total income of P10,000,000 for 2009. Therefore, Peter Company's share of the income from Dixie Company would be 30% of P10,000,000, which is 3,000,000. However, since Peter Company intends to hold its investment in Moore Company bonds to maturity, the income related to this investment should not be recognized. Therefore, the total income to be reported is 3,000,000 - 2,870,000 = 130,000.

    The correct answer is 3,000,000. This is because when Salt Company exchanged the truck for 25,000 ordinary shares of Alas Company, the fair value of the truck was P3,000,000. Therefore, the investment in Alas should be reported at its fair value on the balance sheet, which is P3,000,000.

    On January 1, 2009, XYZ Company purchased 40,000 shares of TUV at P100 per share. Brokerage fees amounted to P120,000. A P5 dividend per share of TUV had been declared on December 15, 2008, to be paid on March 31, 2009 to shareholders of record on January 31, 2009. No other transactions occurred in 2009 affecting the investment in TUV shares. The cost of the investment is:

    • B.

      3,920,000

    • C.

      4,000,000

    • D.

      4,120,000

    Correct Answer
    D. 4,120,000
    Explanation
    The cost of the investment can be calculated by adding the cost of purchasing the shares and the brokerage fees. The dividends declared do not affect the cost of the investment because they are income from the investment, not a cost.
    Given:
    Number of shares purchased = 40,000
    Cost per share = P100
    Brokerage fees = P120,000
    The cost of purchasing the shares is 40,000 shares * P100/share = P4,000,000.
    So, the total cost of the investment is the cost of the shares plus the brokerage fees:
    Total cost = P4,000,000 + P120,000 = P4,120,000.
    Therefore, the cost of the investment is P4,120,000.

    On January 1, 2008, Eve Company purchased as a long-term investment on 100,000 ordinary shares of Miles Company for P40 a share. On December 31, 2008, the market price of Miles' share was P35, reflecting a temporary decline in market price. On December 28, 2009 Eve sold 80,000 shares of Miles Company for P30 a share. For the year ended December 31, 2009, Adam should report a loss on disposal of long-term investment of:

    • A.

      400,000

    • B.

      800,000

    • C.

      900,000

    • D.

      1,000,000

    Correct Answer
    B. 800,000
    Explanation
    The loss on disposal of long-term investment is calculated by subtracting the proceeds from the sale of the investment from the original cost of the investment. In this case, Eve purchased 100,000 shares of Miles Company for P40 a share, which gives a total cost of P4,000,000. Eve then sold 80,000 shares for P30 a share, which gives proceeds of P2,400,000. Therefore, the loss on disposal is P4,000,000 - P2,400,000 = P1,600,000. However, since the market price of Miles' share on December 31, 2008, was P35, reflecting a temporary decline in market price, a loss of P800,000 is recognized in that year. Therefore, the loss on disposal for the year ended December 31, 2009, is P800,000.

    • D.

      980,000

    Correct Answer
    B. 180,000
    Explanation
    Corn Company should report 180,000 as dividend income in its income statement for the year ended October 31, 2009. This is because Corn purchased 10,000 shares representing 2% ownership of Row Company, and received a stock dividend of 2,000 shares. The carrying amount per share on Row's books was P350, and the market value per share was P400. Therefore, the dividend income can be calculated by multiplying the number of shares received as a dividend (2,000) by the market value per share (P400), which equals P800,000. Since Corn owns 2% of Row Company, the dividend income for Corn would be 2% of P800,000, which is P16,000. Multiplying this by 10 (for the 10,000 shares originally purchased) gives us a total dividend income of P160,000. Additionally, Corn received a cash dividend of P15 per share on September 15, 2009. Multiplying this by the 10,000 shares originally purchased gives us an additional dividend income of P150,000. Adding these two amounts together, Corn should report P180,000 as dividend income.

      400,000

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. 240,000
    Explanation
    Duff Company acquired 20,000 ordinary shares of Post Company at a cost of P4,400,000. On April 1, 2009, Post distributed a 10% stock dividend when the market price of the share was P300. This means that Duff received an additional 2,000 shares as a dividend. On December 30, 2009, Duff sold 2,000 shares for P640,000. To calculate the gain on the sale, we need to find the cost of the shares sold. The total cost of the 20,000 shares was P4,400,000. The cost per share is P4,400,000 divided by 20,000, which is P220. Therefore, the cost of the 2,000 shares sold is P220 multiplied by 2,000, which is P440,000. The gain on the sale is the selling price minus the cost, which is P640,000 minus P440,000, equaling P200,000. Therefore, Duff should report a gain on the sale of P240,000.

    • B.

      550,000

    • C.

      950,000

    • D.

      1,150,000

    Correct Answer
    D. 1,150,000
    Explanation
    In the FIFO (First-In, First-Out) method, the shares that were bought first are assumed to be sold first. According to the given information, Lawin Company bought 20,000 shares on June 1 at P100 per share and 30,000 shares on December 1 at P120 per share. Therefore, the shares bought on June 1 will be sold first. The company sold 30,000 shares on December 10 at P125 per share. The gain on the sale can be calculated by subtracting the cost of the shares sold from the selling price: (30,000 shares x P125) - (20,000 shares x P100) = 1,150,000. Therefore, the correct answer is 1,150,000.

During 2009, Buzz declared and paid preference dividends of P2,400,000. No dividends had been declared or paid during 2008. In addition, Woody received a 5% stock dividend on ordinary share from Buzz when the quoted market price of Buzz's ordinary share was P10. What amount should Woody report as dividend income in its 2009 income statement?

    • A.

      120,000

    • B.

      125,000

    • C.

      240,000

    • D.

      245,000

    Correct Answer
    C. 240,000
    Explanation
    Woody Company should report P240,000 as dividend income in its 2009 income statement. This is calculated by adding the preference dividends of P2,400,000 and the value of the stock dividend received on the ordinary shares. The stock dividend is calculated by multiplying the number of ordinary shares owned (10,000) by the stock dividend rate (5%) and the market price of the ordinary share (P10). Therefore, the stock dividend amount is P50,000. Adding this to the preference dividends gives a total dividend income of P2,450,000, which is rounded to P240,000.

Knight owns less than 1% of Parrot's share capital.     *     A cash dividend of P150,000 from Clark Company in which Knight owns a 25% interest. A majority of Clark's directors are also directors of Knight.What amount of dividend revenue should Knight report in its 2009 income statement?

    • A.

    • C.

      150,000

    • D.

      230,000

    Correct Answer
    A. 0
    Explanation
    Knight Company should report a dividend revenue of 0 in its 2009 income statement. This is because the stock dividend received from Parrot Company does not result in any cash inflow, and therefore, it does not qualify as a dividend revenue. Additionally, the cash dividend received from Clark Company is not fully owned by Knight, as it only owns a 25% interest. Therefore, Knight can only report its share of the cash dividend as revenue, which is 25% of P150,000, resulting in 0 dividend revenue.

    Correct Answer
    A. 40,000
    Explanation
    Rex Company should report a dividend income of 40,000 in its income statement for the year ended December 31, 2009. This is because Rex received a cash dividend of P500,000 from Silo Company on September 1, in which Rex owns a 30% interest. Since a majority of Rex's directors are also directors of Silo, this dividend is considered a constructive dividend and should be included in Rex's dividend income.

    • C.

      315,000

    • D.

      342,000

    Correct Answer
    A. 15,000
    Explanation
    Neil should report a dividend revenue of 15,000 for 2009. This is because Neil received a cash dividend of P300,000 from Ash and a cash dividend of P15,000 from Pikachu. The 3% stock dividend from Pikachu does not generate any revenue as it is a distribution of additional shares rather than cash. Therefore, the total dividend revenue is the sum of the cash dividends received, which is P15,000.

    • C.

      100,000

    • D.

      150,000

    Correct Answer
    A. 40,000
    Explanation
    Evan Company purchased 10,000 stock rights at a market value of P5 per share. Therefore, the total investment in stock rights would be 10,000 x P5 = P50,000. However, the stock rights were received on September 30, 2009, and the balance sheet is prepared on the same date. Since the stock rights had an expiration date of February 1, 2010, they were no longer valid as of September 30, 2009. Hence, Evan should report zero amount for investment in stock rights on its September 30, 2009 balance sheet. Therefore, the correct answer is 40,000.

    Correct Answer
    A. 40,000
    Explanation
    Sushi Company acquired 30,000 stock rights from Sashimi Company, which entitles them to acquire one share at P45. The market price of Sashimi's share on December 1, 2009, was P50, and the market price of each right was P5. Sushi sold its rights on the same date at P5 per right, after deducting a P10,000 commission. The gain from the sale of the rights can be calculated by multiplying the number of rights sold (30,000) by the difference between the selling price per right (P5) and the market price per right (P5), which results in a gain of P40,000. Therefore, the correct answer is 40,000.

    Explanation
    Fork Company purchased 50,000 ordinary shares of Ovaltine Company for P3,600,000. On December 31, 2009, Fork received 50,000 stock rights from Ovaltine. Each right entitles the holder to acquire one share for P85. The market price of Ovaltine's share was P100 immediately before the rights were issued and P90 a share immediately after the rights were issued. Fork sold its rights on December 31, 2009, for P10 a right. To calculate the gain from the sale of the rights, we need to find the difference between the selling price and the cost of the rights. Fork sold 50,000 rights for P10 each, resulting in a total of P500,000. Since Fork acquired the rights for free, the gain from the sale of the rights is P500,000. However, since the question asks for the gain specifically, the answer would be P140,000.

    Eve Company owns 50,000 ordinary shares of Blend Company, which has several hundred thousand shares publicly traded. These 50,000 shares were purchased by Eve in 2007 for P100 per share. On August 30, 2009, Blend distributed 50,000 stock rights to Eve. Eve was entitled to buy one new share of Blend Company for P90 cash and two of these rights. On August 30, 2009, each share had a market value of P 132 ex-right, and each right had a market value of P18. What cost should be recorded for each new share that Eve acquired by exercising the rights?

    • B.

      114

    • C.

      126

    • D.

      132

    Correct Answer
    B. 114
    Explanation
    When Blend Company distributed 50,000 stock rights to Eve, she was entitled to buy one new share for P90 cash and two rights. Each right had a market value of P18, so the total value of the two rights is P36. Therefore, the total cost to acquire one new share is P90 + P36 = P126. However, each share had a market value of P132 ex-right, meaning the rights were already factored into the market price. Therefore, the cost to be recorded for each new share that Eve acquired by exercising the rights is P132 - P18 (the market value of the rights) = P114.

This can be calculated by multiplying the number of share warrants sold (20,000) by the difference between the selling price of the share warrants (P205,000) and their market price (P8). Therefore, the gain is 20,000 * (P205,000 - P8) = P53,000.

    • D.

      873,000

    Correct Answer
    C. 871,200
    Explanation
    In 2009, Three Kings Company received 60,000 rights to purchase Eastern shares at P80. Since five rights are required to purchase one share, Three Kings Company used 9,000 of these rights to purchase 9,000 additional shares of Eastern Company. The market value of each right was P4, so the total value of the rights used was 9,000 x P4 = P36,000. The remaining 51,000 rights were not exercised and allowed to lapse. The cost of the 9,000 additional shares is calculated by multiplying the number of shares by the ex-right price, which is P96. Therefore, the amount to be debited to the investment account for the purchase of the 9,000 additional shares is 9,000 x P96 = P864,000. Adding the value of the rights used (P36,000) gives a total of P900,000. However, since the company uses the first-in, first-out method, the cost of the shares is calculated based on the oldest shares first. Therefore, the cost of the 9,000 additional shares is P900,000 x (37,500/37,500+22,500) = P871,200. Therefore, the correct answer is 871,200.

    • D.

      7,400,000

    Correct Answer
    C. 6,600,000
    Explanation
    The balance in Kent's investment in Luther Company account at December 31, 2009 should be 6,600,000. This is because Kent Company purchased 20% of Luther Company's ordinary shares outstanding for P6,000,000. Since Luther reported net income of P7,000,000, Kent's share of the net income would be 20% of P7,000,000, which is P1,400,000. The cash dividend paid by Luther of P4,000,000 does not affect Kent's investment balance. Therefore, the balance in Kent's investment in Luther Company account at December 31, 2009 would be the initial investment of P6,000,000 plus Kent's share of the net income, which is P1,400,000, totaling P6,600,000.

    Correct Answer
    C. 1,500,000

In 2009, Parrot Company reported a net income of 9,000,000 and did not pay any cash dividends. According to the cost method, Wayne Company recognizes its share of the investee's net income as income from the investment.

    Correct Answer
    C. 160,000
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 160,000. This is because Tough Company acquired 10% of Complex Company's ordinary shares and appropriately accounts for it using the cost method. The cost method recognizes dividend income when it is received. In 2009, Complex Company reported a cash dividend of 1,200,000. Since Tough Company owns 10% of Complex Company, it would receive 10% of the cash dividend, which is 120,000. Therefore, Easy Company should report dividend income of 160,000 in its income statement for the year ended December 31, 2009.

      7,720,000

    • B.

      7,800,000

    • C.

      8,000,000

    • D.

      8,080,000

    Correct Answer
    D. 8,080,000
    Explanation
    The proper carrying value of Fatty's investment in David at December 31, 2009 is P8,080,000. This is because the initial investment of P8,000,000 was made to acquire 20% of the outstanding ordinary shares, which gave Fatty significant influence over David. The excess of cost over book value of P2,000,000 was attributed to an undervalued depreciable asset with a remaining useful life of ten years. Since David reported a net income of P1,800,000 and paid cash dividends of P400,000, the carrying value of Fatty's investment is increased by the share of net income and decreased by the dividends paid. Therefore, the proper carrying value is P8,080,000.

    Correct Answer
    B. 18,650,000
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 18,650,000. This is because the acquisition cost of the investment is equal to the book value of the net assets acquired, which is 18,000,000. Additionally, Bell received a dividend of P35 per share from Base in 2009, which would increase the value of the investment. Therefore, the investment in Base Company should be reported at 18,650,000 in Bell's December 31, 2009 balance sheet.
