ratio important because it should be decreasing don t want to see a trend moving debt to equity upwards 0 Return on equity ratio tells you of the invested in the company what the return is Part 2 Overview principles of accounting assumptions etc Framework in which accounting operates o 2 companies can account for things differently but the profession strives for consistency Prof too much leeway allowed called quotearnings managementquot Chapter 3 Measurement Fundamentals Basic assumptions 0 Economic entity must have a corporate entity to analyze 0 Fiscal period must be an arti cial period on which to report 0 Going concern assume the company will continue on 0 Stable dollar usually achieved by hedging Valuations on the balance sheet o 4 types of valuation bases present value fair market value replacement cost original historical cost 0 Principles of Financial Accounting Measurements o Objectivity must be veri able and backed by documentation 0 Matching quotexpense follows the revenuequot focuses on the timing of recognition of expenses the efforts of a given period expenses should be matched against the bene ts revenues they generate ie cost of inventory is initially capitalized as an asset on the balance sheet it is not recorded in COGS expense until the sale is recognized 0 Revenue Recognition determines when revenues can be recognized amp triggers the matching principle which is necessary for determining the measure of performance most common point is when goods amp services are transferred or provided to the buyer at delivery Example 35 McKey should recognize the 40k upon delivery in February 4 revenue recognition criteria 1 Company has completed a signi cant portion of the production and sales effort 2 The amount of revenues can be objectively measured 3 The title of goods has transferred to the buyer and 4 Cash collection is reasonably assured Example ENRON worked quarter to quarter to keep share price up consistently They were looking at a down quarter so they decided to sell the Nigerian barges for the exact amount extra that they needed to make their quarterly numbers Called Merrill Lynch and asked them to buy them for the exact amount they needed and Merrill Lynch agreed to buy them for the gain they needed on the quarter ONLY IF Enron guarantees to buy them back in 6 mos for an even greater gain this type of fraudulent transaction is called parking 0 Consistency GAAP needs to be applied consistently from yea r to yea r Exceptions to the basic principles O O Materiality must be large enough to make a different to nancial statement users if its not then it s immaterial it s the amount that would change the decision of a nancial statement user Conservatism when in doubt nancial statements should understate assets overstate liabilities accelerate the recognition of losses and delay recognition of gains e lower of cost or market is used to value inventory Problem Some managers have abused the conservatism constraint in earnings management See pages 78 amp 80 for discussion examples Example P37 Part A Book value of building at 112014 90000 because Barry paid exactly that on that day Net book value at end of rst year Cost is 90000 less salvage value of 40000 less depreciation value of 5000 for one year so net book at end of year one is 45000 Economic Value PV of Cash in ows the building will generate in the future less the present value of the cash out ows the building will cost in the future PV of net cash in ows is 122891 PV from sale of building is 15421 so total PV of building is 138000 so yes this was a wise investment Part B Income Statement n Revenue 65000 a Expenses 45000 a Depreciation 5000 a Net Income 15000 Part B Balance Sheet In LeftDebit Side 0 Cash 20000 Net income

90000 15000 0 Example lD38 You shouldn t correct 2 year of errors in one quarter adjustment entry violates the consistency principle didn t accurately re ect nancial results in 2008 and a reader would not see the results in the correct period violating the scal period should have restated all of 2008 and 2009 statements should match revenues and expenses within the same scal period Chapter 4 Mechanics of Financial Accounting 0 1st step is transaction analysis use spreadsheet approach 0 See Example E42 Debits Assets Expenses Credits Liabilities Equity Revenue 0 No assignment for Tuesday 0 Overall picture of how accounts are kept 0 General Journal big black book every transaction is written in the General Journal 0 General Ledger accumulate the debits and credits and at end of period you post it to the general ledger T account each page is one account rst page is Cash at end of month is balance 0 Financial Statements created by taking each page from General Ledger and putting it into the correct nancial statement Assets aka Debits or Left Hand Liabilities Equity aka Credits or Right Hand 0 Double entry accounting 0 Debit means an entry to the left hand side 0 Credit means an entry to the right hand side of an account 0 Doesn t indicate increase or decrease Journal Entries 0 e Cash to buy inventory credit cash debit inventory Rules Assets have normal debit balances and increase with a debit Liabilities have normal credit accounts and increase with a credit Expenses have normal debit balances and increase with a debit Dividends have a normal debit balance and increase with a debit Revenues have normal credit balances and increased with a credit Taccounts see examples on O O 0 Running tally of the affect of transactions on an account in the General Ledger We call this process posting to the GL The running tally makes it possible to complete trial balances and nancial statements Recognizing Gains and Losses this is not revenue that is an opera 0 O O tional term Investments and noncurrent assets are sold for more or less than the amounts at which they are carried on the balance sheet at such point a gain or loss must be recognized Different than revenue and expenses Bottom of income statement both gains and losses are posted to the income statement Periodic Adjustments 0 Prepared at the end of the accounting period to align revenues and expenses matching principle so that net income for the period will be the result of proper matching of revenues and expenses within the period 3 forms accruals deferrals revaluations just called adjustments serve to restate accounts to keep recorded values with existing facts ie short term investments accounts receivable bad debt inventories Usually NO document ow to trigger recording doesn t take any cash or transaction to trigger this but you must accrue the entries anyway 0 Interest and accrued wages are perfect examples of accruals 0 Example Accrual of Revenues Rental revenue where the rental payment has not yet been received For revenues that have not yet been recorded at the end of the period 0 Deferral of expenses 0 Asset capitalization and the matching principle Occurs when a cost with future economic bene t is incurred an asset is recognized at that time As the asset contributes to the generation of revenue revenue recognition the related cost is recognized as an expense classic matching principle 0 Expense or capitalize o Fine Host example same as WorldCom but they were caught by auditors they were aggressive but they weren t hiding anything unethical but wasn t convicted of fraud 0 Example Problem P45 on page 152 0 Prepare balance sheet and Income Statement with your group iv r rvv77ihmw 7 r r a u was 1 swagr ngBsWquot 27239 39 km 4x rr away 7 r 7 U 39 W E n

Chapter 6 Current Asset Classi cation Cash and Accounts Receivable Current Asset classi cation 0 Current asset any asset that is intended to be converted into cash within one year or the company s operating cycle whichever is longer Current ratio current assets current liabilities can you pay your bills Liquidity 0 Limitations of the Current Assets not always relevant or up to date information 0 Proper Management of Cash amp Restrictions Restrictions placed on company s access to its cash are typically imposed by creditors to help ensure interest and principal payments Compensating balances are sometimes required Record control over cash Physical control over cash 0 Accounts Receivable For next time Homework ID 62 Accounts receivable arise from selling goods or services to customers on account Recorded at face amount to be collected However we must also re ect the fact that a portion of AR may not be collected We adjust to Net Realizable Value Reasons for lack ofpartial collection a Sales discounts cash discounts a Sales returns a Sales allowances n Uncollectible AR bad debt Net Realizable Value a How do you estimate NRV Percentage of sale or 0 Aging schedule of AR See examples on ID 62 and ID 65 p 265266 ID 611 page 268 A Any deviation from the ultra conservative methods would harm their rep B By recognizing the pro ts early on they re shortchanging their future long term reports however they are probably recognizing the pro ts as part of overall corporate scheme which affects the department and executives bonus portions based on performance C It s a grey area arguably the accountants are functioning properly because they are within GAAP and their own internal protocols however it s against the spirit of the COC Class Discussion Would affect performance based compensation by maximizing it on the short term Prof thinks the accounting principle might be wrong but if you have a contract they may not have any credit risk for these clients No matching Doing it this way means you have to keep it up quarter after quarter to sustain income and shareholder value ID 65 Increasing the reserve would signal to the market that they re expecting the default in subprime mortgages and by coupling those reserve accounts they can effectively hide the oncoming drop A signi cant drop in the GDP could result in layoffs and RIFS that would then affect subprime mortgages for those persons who were already atrisk when they received nancing ID 611 By limiting cash ow and tightening credit many capital and real estate intensive projects were put on hold thus the real estate projects internationally slowed and would further slow the payments to a construction company signi cantly reducing their cash ow and thus causing them to write off bad debts for underfunded or cancelled projects The other side of that bad debt expense is vendors and customers customers who don t pay and vendors who don t get paid or who can t deliver and because the cash ow is not as expected the income statements suffer and the balance sheet is reduced because liabilities increase If bad debt expense is increasing across the industry then it signals a slow in construction projects and a reduction in income statements because projects have been put on hold Chapter 7 Inventory Most dif cult account dif cult to value audit keep up with easily manipulated etc 0 To calculate COGS Beginning Inventory Purchases Ending Inventory 0 Reserves are NOT inventory they are not even part of the accounting process it s just reported in an unaudited footnote 0 Inventory

Economic Consequences Income Taxes and Liability Bookkeeping costs LIFO liquidation and inventory purchasing practices Debt and Compensation Practices The Capital Markets Ending Inventory Applying the LowerofCostorMarket Rule 0 Applying the lower of cost or market rule to ending inventory is accomplished by comparing the cost allocated to ending inventory with the market value of the inventory If the market value exceeds the cost no adjustment is made and the inventory remains at cost If the market value is less than the cost the inventories are written down to market value with an adjusting journal entry quotwriting it downquot Ethics inventory fraud ID 77 Thinning inventories Sell off existing inventory cash ow increases for capital projects when credit tightens they still have cash ow not replacing inventory this improves cash ow you ll see inventory in balance sheet and look for detail in the footnote Bring Starbucks 10K for next time Saturday team projects too Chapter 8 Investments in Equity Securities Companies make investments in equity securities by buying and selling stock on the open market even if they aren t involved in that particular business 0 Historical cost principle is NOT followed with investment securities use marktomarket rule carried on the balance sheet if convertible into cash in one year if there is a gain or loss it s recognized as such and re ected in retained earnings 0 NOT part of operations and therefore NOT part of revenue Longterm Equity Investments o Treated differently depending on percentage of ownership 0 Equity method

than the fair market value of net assets 0 Prior to 2002 goodwill was amortized over 40 years after 2002 goodwill cannot be amortized but rather is subject to an impairment test each year to see if the balance sheet amount ofthe goodwill exceeds its estimated fair market value 0 Special Purpose Entities 0 Created by companies to carry out activities or transactions directly related to speci c

allocation Amortizing capitalized costs 0 The costs are to be matched against the bene ts produced by the asset Estimate useful life based on physical obsolescence Estimate a salvage value based on amount that can be recovered Choose a cost allocation depreciation method a Straightline method assumed use of machine is constant a Accelerated depreciation accelerates at the beginning of the life of the asset depreciates the most at rst like a car a Activity method allocates cost to future periods on the basis of its activity Intangible Assets o Characterized by lack of physical substances and higher uncertainty about future bene ts 0 Patents 20 year legal life May capitalize the cost of acquiring an externally developed patent n Filing fees for internally or externally developed patents n The legal fees for acquiring and successfully defending a patent internal or external Cannot capitalize legal fees for unsuccessfully defending a patent most research and development costs for an
