How to calculate the times interest earned ratio?

Income before interest expense and taxes
----------------------------
Interest expense

= times interest earned ratio

Example:
Operating income $900,000
Interest expense (100,000)
Income before income tax = 800,000
Income tax expense (320,000)
Net income = 480,000
Preferred stock dividends (200,000)
Net income available to c/sholders = $280,000
=========

$900,000 operating income / $100,000 interest expense = 9.0 to 1 ratio (answer)

How to calculate the Common stock, preferred stock, and additional APIC when have the following information:

On April 1, 20X1, Hyde Corp., a newly formed company, had the following stock issued and outstanding:

Common stock, no par, $1 stated value, 10,000 shares originally issued for $20 per share
Preferred stock, $10 par value, 5,000 shares originally issued for $60 per share

Common stock = $1 stated value x 10,000 shares
C/S = $10,000

Preferred stock = $10 par x 5,000 share
P/S = $50,000

APIC = ($20 - $1) x 10,000 on the CS
and
($60 - $10) x 5,000 on the P/S

So: ($19 x 10,000) + ($50 x 5,000)
= 190,000 APIC-CS + 250,000 APIC-PS
= 440,000 (total APIC)

Journal entries:
Common stock
Dr. Cash ($20 x 10,000) $200,000
Cr. C/S ($1 x 10,000) $10,000
Cr. APIC-CS ($20-$1 x 10000) $190,000

Preferred Stock
Dr. Cash ($60 x 5,000) 300,000
Cr. P/S ($10 x 5,000) 50,000
Cr. APIC-PS ($50 x 5,000) 250,000

The original contractual rate.

Explanation: Effective interest rate is on the Original Contractual rate. It does not deal with Current Interest Rate or rate specified in the restructuring agreement.

7

Cost Recovery - How to calculate the gross profit from sales to customers in year 1 and year 2?

Here's the data:

3/31, Year 1 3/31, Year 2
Sales $10,000 $15,000
Cost of sales 8,000 9,000
Cash collections
on Year 1 sales 7,000 3,000
on Year 2 sales -- 12,000

Note: Cost recover is to recognize realized profit / gross profit when collected all the cash to cover the cost of sales.

Year 1:
Cost of sales is $8,000
Cash collected in year 1 = $7,000

Therefore, do not recognize any profit because the cash collections did not cover the entire cost of $8000.

Year 2:

Cost of sales is $9,000
Cash collected: $3,000 for year 1 sales; $12,000 for year 2 sales.

So:
For year 1 sales cost recovery: $7,000 (yr 1) + $3,000 (yr 2)
For year 2 sales cost recovery: $12,000

Yr 1 collections: $7,000 + $3,000 = $10,000

$10,000 - $8000 (year 1 cost of sales) = $2,000 Gross profit

Yr 2 collections: $12,000 (this covers the $9,000 cost of sales in year 2), therefore:

$12,000 - $9,000 = $3,000 gross profit.

Thus: in year 2 - recognize the Gross profit for collections for Year 1 sales and year 2 sales

$10,000 collected - $8,000 costs = $2,000 GP
$12,000 collected - $9,000 costs = $3,000 GP
----------------------------------------------------------
= $5,000 GP (reported in Year 2 only income statement)

How to calculate the construction interest capitalization?

Here's the data:
Construction loan = $300,000 loan with 10% interest on 1/1/YR 1

On 1/1/YR 1, constrution began with these payments:

1/1 Purchase land for $120,000
9/1 Progress payment to contractor for $150,000

Note: only calculate the portion of the interest during the time of construction. No interest capitalization before construction began or after construction ended.

Calculation:

$120,000 land purchase x 12 months / 12 months = $120,000

$150,000 contractor payment x 4 / 12 months (September to Dec) = $50,000

[$120,000 + 50,000] x 10%
= $170,000 x 10%
= $17,000 interest capitalized (answer)

Bond proceeds - how to calulate when have the following:

issued 500, 10%, $1,000 bonds at .98 accrued interest

Interest is paid semi-annually on April 1 and Sept 1.

Answer:

Sale price = 500 x 1,000 x 0.98 = 495,000
Accr. int. = 500 x $1,000 x 0.10 x (4/12) = 16,667

Total bond proceeds received = 511,667

*Note: 4/12 is from Sept 1 to Dec 31 (Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec = 4 months)

10

How to calculate dollar LIFO?

Note: need to have price index and base year cost.

Index = Inventory at current year cost / Inventory at base year cost

Then: Year Index x year layer at base year cost

Then: Dollar Value LIFO inventory
= Prior year valuation + Current year layer

Example:

20X2 index = $80,000 current cost inventory / $60,000 inventory base cost

20X2 index = 1.333

20X2 layer = 20X2 index x 20X2 base year cost layer
= 1.333 x $15,000
= $20,000

Dollar LIFO inventory on Dec 31 20X2
= 12/31/X1 valuation (12/31/X1 Dollar LIFO) + 20X2 layer
= $46,000 + $20,000
= $66,000

11

What is the preferred stock dividend ratio?

Or: [Operating income minus all expenses] / Preferred stock dividends paid out.

April 15 and October 13 = date of publishing and shipping subscription magazine to customers (after company receive the cash)

March 31 and September 31 = cutoff dates where subscription payment by customers and the customers get their magazine in the next publication date.

Deferred Subscription revenue (Jan 1, 20X1) = $750,000
Cash receipts from subscribers = 3,600,000




$3,600,000 cash received 3/12 months = $900,000

*3/12 months (after Sept 31 cutoff, so, it's oct, nov, dec. i.e. 3 months after Sept 31 cutoff.)

Note: if cutoff date (last one was) Sept 1, then it's 4/12 months (Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec)

15

How to calculate bond interest expense with the following data:

June 1 issued bonds
Principal amount = 200,000
Interest rate = 7%
Interest payment dates are on April 1 and Oct 1.

200,000 (principal) x 7% (interest rate) x 7/12 months (time)
= $8167

*Note: the 7/12 months is from June 1 to Dec. 31
(Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec)

If it's June 30 to Dec 31, then it's 6 months because Jun 30 is like July 1st. (Jul, Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec.)

16

How to calculate additional pension liability when have the following data:

Projected benefit obligation $103,000
Plan assets at fair value 78,000
Net periodic pension cost 90,000
Employer’s contribution 70,000

(1) Projected benefit obligation (PBO) - Plan assets fair value = underfunded pension

(2) Net pension costs > contributions
Net pension costs - contributions = result

(3) Result - underfunded pension = additional liability

Example:
(1) $103,000 - 78,000 = 25,000 underfunded

(2) 90,000 net pension cost - 70,000 contribution = $20,000

(3) $25,000 underfunded - $20,000 = $5,000 additional liability
