leave any fields blank.)
Case 1

10,100
Case 2
Impairment Loss

Case 1 - The impairment loss is \$10,100 (\$43,870 - \$33,770). The loss is limited by the lower of
amortized cost or fair value.
Case 2 - No impairment results, because the fair value is greater than amortized cost.

Exercise 17-28
Nash Co. uses titanium in the production of its specialty drivers. Nash anticipates that it will need
to purchase 310 ounces of titanium in November 2017, for clubs that will be sold in advance of the
spring and summer of 2018. However, if the price of titanium increases, this will increase the cost
to produce the clubs, which will result in lower profit margins.
To hedge the risk of increased titanium prices, on May 1, 2017, Nash enters into a titanium futures
contract and designates this futures contract as a cash flow hedge of the anticipated titanium
purchase. The notional amount of the contract is 310 ounces, and the terms of the contract give
Nash the option to purchase titanium at a price of \$775 per ounce. The price will be good until the
contract expires on November 30, 2017.
Assume the following data with respect to the price of the call options and the titanium inventory
purchase.
