Case 10-2 Eagle Impairment Case
Question #1
Under IFRS’ International Account Standard No.36^15 an asset must be assessed for indicators of impairment at the end of each reporting period. The information provided for the commercial building in Italy does not say whether there are is an event or change in circumstances that indicate that book value of the asset may not be recoverable. Since there is no indicator mentioned, one possibility would be that no investigation of impairment take place and there is no impairment loss. It is more likely however that there are indicators that have occurred, they just aren’t identifiable from the information given. If there were indicators and impairment was tested there is no recoverability test under IFRS. An impairment loss is recognized when an asset’s book value exceeds the higher of the asset’s value-in-use or fair value less costs to sell. For Italy’s commercial building the book value is $1,100,000, the value-in-use is $900,000, and the fair value less costs to sell is $800,000. Since the commercial building’s book value is higher than the value-in-use an impairment would be recognized as the difference between book value and the recoverable amount (value-in-use in this situation). So an impairment loss would be recognized for $200,000($1,100,000- $900,000).
Question #2
Under U.S. GAAP, assets are tested for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that book value may not be recoverable. For the building in Italy, again there is no information provided that says that there have been indicators that book value may not be recoverable. So a possible outcome in this situation could be that no investigation even take place and no impairment be recognized. If there are indicators which aren’t presented in the text, an impairment loss is required only when the undiscounted sum of estimated future cash…...

...of the requirement tests for impairment. As a result, we need to verify if impairment should be recognized. 2. The impairement is $600,000. GAAP methodology of determining impairment uses a two-step recoverability test. Step one, requires a company to estimate the future undiscounted cash flows expected from the use of that asset and its eventual disposition. If impairment has occurred, step two would determine the loss by subtracting the fair value from the carrying amount of the asset. 3. Ida should record $500,000 impairment loss on the U.S. commercial building when reporting to its parent as of December 31, 2012. Since the recoverability test is needed under IFRSs, Ida needs to figure out the amount of impairment (if any) which should record on the commercial building and report to its parent as of December 31, 2012. An impairment loss is the amount by which the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its recoverable amount. The carrying amount of Ida's building is $4,500,000, and in order to calculate the impairment loss, its recoverable amount is required. 4. A. After the impairment testing, goodwill associated with the Spanish operations impairs under GAAP as of 12/31/2010. The impairment loss is $200,000.

Eagle Impairment Loss Case

...Case #2 (Eagle Impairment Loss) Question 1: The Impairment Loss of Eagle in Italy under IFRS Recoverability test: Asset’s carrying amount exceeds the recoverable amount which is the higher of the asset’s value-in-use (discounted present value of the asset’s expected future cash flows) and fair market value less costs to sell. (IAS36-15) According to IAS36-6, “an impairment loss is the amount by which the carrying amount of an asset or a cash-generating unit exceeds its recoverable amount. The impairment loss = Carrying amount - Value in use = $1,100,000-900,000=$200,000 Question 2: The Impairment Loss of Eagle in Italy under U.S. GAAP (FASB 360-10) Recoverability test: Asset’s carrying amount exceeds the undiscounted future cash flows from the asset. Because the carrying amount $1,100 is less than the undiscounted future cash flows $1,150, there is no impairment loss. Question 3: The Impairment Loss of Eagle in Serbia 1. Impairment of Goodwill under GAAP and IFRSs - Two-step approach for testing goodwill impairment under U.S. GAAP (FASB ASC-350-20-35) 1) If assets’ fair value of reporting unit is greater than the carrying amount including goodwill, there is no impairment. 2) If there’s impairment indicated by step 1, then compare implied fair value of goodwill with carrying amount. Implied fair value of goodwill is obtained by deducting the fair values of all the reporting unit’s assets and liabilities from the fair value of the reporting......

Eagle Impairment

...The case begins with describing Eagle impairment, which is a manufacturing company, which has operations in Italy and Serbia. In Italy Eagle owns and operates a commercial building that is carried at its cost less depreciation. The case then gives us a chart which shows us Cash generating unit that includes: carrying amount $1,100, value in use 900, fair market value less costs to sell 800, fair market value 850, and undiscounted future cash flows 1,150 all in thousands. Eagle’s manufacturing company in Serbia attained a smaller competing company. The activities in Serbia are regarded as not impaired because the value in the use of CGU including goodwill exceeds its carrying amount. By the end of 2010 the govt passed a legislation drastically restricting exports of eagle’s main merchandise. The CGU in the end of 2010 was altered because of the new legislation, which included: cash $50, property plant and equipment 1,100, land 150, goodwill 300, total assets 1,600, liabilities (200), and carrying value 1,400 all in thousands. The case goes on to show us a 5 year business forecast of Eagle Impairment. It reflects an increase in the amount of capital expenditures in order to modify Eagle’s mail product. Eagle uses straight line depreciation and anticipates no residual value. 1. I assume the commercial building meets the requirements for a recoverable test under IFRS. The carrying value is $1,100 whci is greater than the claue in use which is $900. The fair market value......

Eagle Impairment Loss

...Eagle Impairment Loss Eagle Company (Eagle) is a manufacturing company with operations in Italy and Serbia. Eagle in Italy: In addition to other assets, Eagle owns and operates a commercial building in Italy that is carried at its cost less any accumulated depreciation and any accumulated impairment losses. The building represents a cash-generating unit (CGU) for which the following information is available as of December 31, 2010: Building | 12/31/10 inthousands | Carrying amount | $1,100 | Value in use | 900 | Fair market value less costs to sell | 800 | Fair market value | 850 | Undiscounted future cash flows | 1,150 | Eagle in Serbia: In Serbia, in 2008, Eagle acquired a smaller competing company and goodwill was allocated to the CGU shown below. Activities in Serbia represent the lowest level at which internal management monitors goodwill. At the end of 2008 and 2009, the value in use of the CGU including goodwill exceeded its carrying amount. Therefore the activities of Eagle in Serbia and the goodwill allocated to those activities were regarded as not impaired. However, at the end of 2010, the newly elected government passed legislation significantly restricting exports of Eagle’s main product. The information below relates to the CGU (which includes goodwill) of Eagle’s operations in Serbia before the impairment analysis is performed. For this case, assume the basis of segmentation for CGUs and reporting units (RU) is the same under IFRSs......

Eagle Impairment Case

...Eagle Impairment Case The following report outlines an analysis of Eagle Company’s assets in Serbia and Italy. With the information provided, we have created a detailed report to assess which assets should be impaired along with its impairment value under the IFRS and US GAAP standards. Eagle in Italy Under IFRS: Eagle owns a commercial building in Italy. The carrying amount is $1,100 with $900 being the value in use. According to IAS 36 P18, “An asset is impaired when its carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount.” In this case, the carrying amount ($1,100) exceeds the recoverable amount (Higher of Value in use) of $900. Eagle should report an impairment loss of the difference of the carrying amount and the value in use: $1,100 - $900 = $200,000. Eagle should report an impairment loss of $200,000 for their cash-generating unit (CGU) in Italy. Under US GAAP: According to US GAAP, if the undiscounted future cash flows ($1,150) exceeds the carrying amount ($1,100), then no impairment loss is recorded. Since that is the case, under US GAAP, Eagle should not report an impairment loss on their CGU. Eagle in Serbia Under IFRS: Eagle acquired a smaller competing company in 2011 in Serbia; goodwill was allocated to the CGU. The guidelines for determining whether an impairment loss is recorded are the same as the scenario for Eagle in Italy, “An asset is impaired when its carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount.” The fair value of the PP&E was $1......

Case: 10-2 Eagle Impairment Loss

...Case 04-4 Three Little Pigs, Inc. Three Little Pigs, Inc. (PIGS), a public entity, is a vertically-integrated provider of pork products to the wholesale and retail food service and institutional markets in the United States. The Company produces approximately 4.1 million hogs per year and processes the majority of the hogs in its own facilities. The Company also sells a portion of the hogs produced (live hogs) to outside third parties. PIGS does not have any firm commitments to sell live hogs to third parties, nor does it hedge its live hogs through commodity futures contracts. There are essentially three major categories of hog inventory—live hogs ready for sale, developing animals, and processed pork products. Farmer Joe, CEO of the Company, has represented that the processed pork product prices are sufficient to cover the costs of producing such products, i.e., the wholesale prices of processed pork products, such as loins, hams, and bacon exceed the cost to bring such products to market. As a result, management believes that there is no lower of cost or market issue related to live hogs ready for sale or developing animals that will be internally processed and sold as processed pork products. However, there are live hogs in other locations that cannot be easily transported and processed at the Company’s main processing plants. As a result, these live hogs must be sold to third parties at spot market prices, which have declined, as further discussed below. During the......

Eagle Impairment Loss

...Case 2: Eagle Impairment Loss 1. We have referred to IAS 36 to make the decision on the amount that should be impaired by Eagle in Italy. Since in the case it says that there are qualitative factors that suggest an impairment is likely, we have to evaluate based on the recoverability test. IAS claims that we can recognize an impairment loss under the following circumstances: “If, and only if, the recoverable amount of an asset is less than its carrying amount, the carrying amount of the asset shall be reduced to its recoverable amount. That reduction is an impairment loss.”(IAS36-59). To be able to determine the amount impaired, we have to find the definition of recoverable amount. On Page 13 in IAS 36, the recoverable amount of an asset is, “the higher of its fair value less costs to sell and its value in use. (P-13 IAS 36) So, the impairment loss is 1100, 000-900,000=200,000 2.  According to the FASB, “An impairment loss shall be recognized only if the carrying amount of a long-lived asset (asset group) is not recoverable and exceeds its fair value.”(360-10-35-17) However, in this case the recoverable costs is 1,150,000 which is larger than the carrying value 1,100,000. Thus, we do not need to record the impairment loss under GAAP. 3. Part 1 IFRS Under IFRS, “A cash-generating unit to which goodwill has been allocated shall be tested for Impairment annually, and whenever there is an indication that the unit may be impaired, by comparing the carrying amount of......

Eagle Tours Business Case

...Eagle Tours Case Case Description Eagle Tours is a travel services marketing and development company. It organizes domestic and international trips and cruises for businesses and consumers. It competes by providing very knowledgeable and enthusiastic sales people, excellent tour guides and tour coordinators service at a competitive, but not the cheapest price. The Mall Stores and Marketing Eagle has 5 travel stores in large Malls in metro areas of the U.S. The mall stores are places where people can come to get brochures about vacation products and where they can buy vacation products. One of the challenges that Eagle had was that it was unable to attract young people to come in the mall stores and to buy products. How can it create a gathering place for people who love talking about their “trips”. Susan, the marketing manager believes that: “Eagle needs to create a real buzz for our trips. To do this we have to improve our marketing activities and reach more people in their 30s and 20s. It would be great if we could transform our mall stores into an engaging environment for learning from and interacting with customers. Also, it has also been impossible for us to keep our sales people busy during the day. They have little to do during the day, but during the evening customers have to wait 30-45 minutes to ask our sales consultant questions. We are losing customers because they leave before we can talk to them. We offer free coffee and TV programing to customers,...

Goodwill Impairment Case

...Jacquelyn Keville William Brown 797AT Case Study April 9, 2015 1. No, management did not have to perform an interim goodwill step 1 impairment test as of September 30, 2012. In December of 2011 Galaxy used an external valuation firm to perform its goodwill impairment analysis. This showed that each reporting unit passed step 1 of the impairment test because the fair value of their equity was well above the book value of their equity. In Q1 and Q2 following this impairment analysis earnings were below expectation due to the slowing economy. In September 2012, at the beginning of Q3 Galaxy was considering performing an interim goodwill impairment test. In reviewing ASC 350 they concluded that this was not necessary for them to perform, which was the correct decision. ASC 350 states, “Goodwill of a reporting unit shall be tested for impairment between annual tests if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying amount. Additionally, if the carrying amount of a reporting unit is zero or negative, goodwill of that reporting unit shall be tested for impairment on an annual or interim basis if an event occurs or circumstances exist that indicate that it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment exists.” (350-20-35-30) The circumstances that could possibly reduce the fair value below its carrying amount are macroeconomic conditions, industry and market considerations, cost factors,...

Actg 351 Case 2

...Case #2 Murong Feng, Duy Do, TJ Fritzgerald, Hayden Jacobs 2/13/15 Question 1 Given the facts provided for Eagle in Italy, the building is not impaired under IFRS as of December 31, 2010. The carrying value is 1,100,000, and undiscounted future cash flows are 1,150,000. The carrying value is less than undiscounted future cash flows. According to IAS36 paragraph 12, “in assessing whether there is any indication that an asset may be impaired, an entity shall consider, as a minimum, the following indications: (d) the carrying amount of the net assets of the entity is more than its market capitalization.” Thus, there is not any impairment on the building under IFRS. Question 2 Given the facts provided for Eagle in Italy, the building is impaired under U.S. GAAP as of December 31, 2010. Under ACS 360-35-17, “An impairment loss shall be recognized only if the carrying amount of a long-lived asset is not recoverable and exceeds its fair value. The carrying amount of a long-lived asset is not recoverable if it exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and eventual disposition of the asset” In the case, the carrying value is 1,100,000, and the fair value is 850,000. The carrying value is more than its fair value, an impairment should be recognized. However, it is recoverable since its carrying value is less than undiscounted future cash flows. In ASC 360-35-17 “An impairment loss shall be measured as the amount by which the carrying......

With office supplies, there is no difficulties in comparison and substitution as there is very little or no differentiation among the suppliers and products. b. Also, with initial understanding obtained from the data, quick hit opportunities are present for savings. 2. What observations can you develop about Eagle's SKU usage, prices they pay and contracts they currently use?  a. About the SKU usage, the there were broad range of products as well as individual items purchased per category. b. The prices Eagle paid with large difference in the prices for the identical items by the same supplier.
