MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS
1.a
Remeasurement changes local currency accounts (euros) to the functional currency (krona).
Translation changes the functional currency accounts (krona) to the reporting currency
(U.S. dollars).
2.d
Remeasure the equipment to U.S. dollars using the rates when the equipment was
purchased. (€1,000,000 x \$1.40) + (€3,000,000 x \$1.50) = \$5,900,000.

5.b
Translation multiplies the current ratio numerator and denominator by the same rate.
6.c
A steadily weakening dollar means the direct rate is rising. Translated assets are multiplied by an
increasing rate.
7.b
The direct rate is falling. Entry R debits goodwill at the lower ending rate, and eliminates the
remaining investment balance, created at higher rates, leading to a debit to OCI. Entry O
credits goodwill at the ending rate and debits impairment loss at the higher average rate,
leading to a credit to OCI.

IFRS: (10,000,000 x 400/100) x £0.01 = £400,000
U.S. GAAP: (10,000,000 x £0.05) = £500,000
10.d
For non-inflationary economies, IFRS and U.S. GAAP remeasurement and translation
procedures are the same.

Translation maintains the local currency relationships better than remeasurement.
b.
The direct exchange rate appears to be falling with the dollar strengthening and the rand
weakening. This can be seen by observing that remeasured assets of \$2,000,000
(remeasured at historical rates) are higher than translated assets of \$1,400,000 (translated
at average of beginning and ending current rates).
Similarly, remeasured operating income of \$130,000 is lower than translated operating
income of \$150,000, due to depreciation and amortization expenses being remeasured at
higher historical rates when the functional currency is the \$.
The declining exchange rate causes the DuPont analysis performance measures to be
distorted by the changing exchange rate. If performance measured in the local currency-rands--is the benchmark, translation does a much better job of preserving the local
currency results than remeasurement.
Under either method, though, changes in exchange rates over the years weaken our ability
to effectively make year-to-year comparisons of \$ performance measures.

12/.5(112 + 95) = .116

10.89/.5(95 + 95) = .115
Note: 10 = 12/1.2; 12.1 = 10.89/.9; 80 = 112/1.4
€
10/.5(80 + 95) = .114
12.1/.5( 95+ 95) = .127
Although the ROA based on euro data increased by 11.4% [= (.127 - .114)/.114],
translated data produced an ROA that declined slightly over the period. This distortion
created by translation can be attributed to two factors.
1.
The declining average exchange rate caused translated operating income to fall by
9.3% [= (10.89 - 12)/12] even though euro income rose by 21%. Thus the
numerator of the euro ROA rose while the numerator of the translated ROA fell.
2.
Translated average total assets decreased by 8.2% [= (95 -103.5)/103.5], whereas
average euro assets increased by 8.6% [= (95 - 87.5)/87.5]. This increased the
denominator of the euro ROA relative to the translated ROA.
Solutions Manual, Chapter 7
11
The net effect of the changing exchange rate on euro income and average total assets
creates a divergence between the euro ROA -- which suggests improved profitability of
the asset portfolio -- and the slightly weakening ROA based on translated data.
Since the euro is the entity's functional currency, the entity's financial performance is best
measured by euro data. Internal management has these euro data and can decide whether
to make decisions based on translated data. Financial statement users outside the entity,
however, cannot easily determine that translated data provide the wrong performance
signal and factor out the translation effects that produce the wrong performance signal.
E7.11 Comparison of Translation and Remeasurement
a.
The direct exchange rate has been steadily increasing. This means that many remeasured
expenses are lower than translated expenses, since historical rates are lower than average
rates. Since Sears Canada has a positive exposed position for remeasurement, the
increase in rate will result in a remeasurement gain on the income statement. For these
reasons, remeasured income is higher than translated income.
If Sears Canada had a net negative exposed position for remeasurement, a remeasurement
loss would be shown on the income statement, possibly offsetting the effect of lower
expenses. In this case, no clear statement can be made concerning the relationship
between remeasured and translated income.
b.
Remeasured assets are lower than translated assets since historical rates are lower than the
current rate. From above, remeasured income is higher than translated income. These
factors combine to show remeasured ROA as greater than translated ROA.
c.
Remeasured current assets may be slightly lower than translated current assets, as
inventories and possibly prepaids would be remeasured at lower historical rates. Current
liabilities are likely to be the same under both methods. Therefore the remeasured current
ratio is lower than the translated current ratio.
Remeasured and translated debt should be the same. Remeasured total assets are lower
since the older noncurrent assets are remeasured at lower historical rates. Thus
remeasured debt to assets is higher than translated debt to assets.

Translation and Performance Evaluation
a.
In euros, net income increased about 42% [= (595 - 420)/420], driven by the 20%
increase in sales. Expenses increased by 14% but, because they amount to less than sales,
there is a much greater impact on the bottom line.
Next, we compare 2015 and 2014 in dollars when the functional currency is the euro.

c.
The basic problem with internal performance evaluation based on either translated or
remeasured data is that management is being judged in part on an important factor that it
cannot control--the exchange rate. Moreover, because the exchange rate changes each
year, "comparative" data tend to become incomparable. At least two approaches could be
considered.
First, probably the most obvious approach to avoiding exchange rate distortions is to use
the euro data, particularly when the euro is the entity's functional currency. High inflation
rates or changes in prices of the goods and services bought and sold by the entity weaken
the comparability of the comparative euro data.
A second approach involves removing the effect of year-to-year exchange rate changes.
When the functional currency is the euro, the 2015 euro results can be translated at the
2014 average \$/€ rate. Under this approach, 2015 income of €595 translated at the 2014
rate of \$1.45/€ amounts to \$863, an increase of 42% over 2014's \$609.
When the functional currency is the U.S. dollar, both the average rate for 2014 as well as
the historical rates used in 2014 remeasurement must be retained, as shown below. This
approach shows remeasured net 2015 income, using 2014 rates, about 44% higher than
reported in 2014.

For these data, retaining 2014 \$/€ exchange rates to translate and remeasure 2015 euro
data provides percentage changes in dollar income close to that observed in euros.
However, as pointed out in the chapter, applying this approach to remeasurement
generally produces similar results only by coincidence.

Note to Instructor: The solution to this problem uses net income. Using operating
income (excluding the remeasurement gain), the ratios using remeasured data are:
Operating income/sales
Operating income/total assets
(12/650) =
(12/616) =
.018
.019
The ratios computed using translated data do a better job of preserving the same
relationships expressed in euros than do the remeasured ratios. With ratios like return on
sales, gross margin percentage and the current ratio, the translated results will be the same
as the euro results. This happens because in translation, the numerator and denominator
of each ratio are multiplied by the same constant (exchange rate) which then cancels out.
Return on assets using translated data will differ somewhat from the euro ratio depending
on how much the exchange rate has changed during the year. In this ratio, translated net
income reflects the weighted average exchange rate for a year while total assets could be
translated at the ending exchange rate or a simple average of beginning and ending rates
which may differ from the weighted average.
24
Ratios based on remeasured data equal their euro counterparts only by coincidence.
Because some items are translated at historical rates and others at the current rate or the
average rate, the numerator and denominator do not reflect a constant which simply
cancels out.
d.
If the euro continues to weaken, the ratios using translated data improve if the activity
level is held constant. Return on sales is unaffected by the changing exchange rate but
return on assets could increase over the previous year, since assets are translated at the
ending (lower) rate while income is translated at the average (higher) rate. While the
ratio signals improvement in performance, any new investments in that international
country must be considered within the context of its weakening foreign currency.
Use of remeasured data, however, shows a decline in the return on assets. Remeasured
net income, the numerator, falls as it is largely remeasured at the lower average rate. In
contrast, total assets, the denominator, remains high as it is remeasured largely at the
higher historical rates.
Ratio analysis has been and continues to be a tricky business. It should be viewed as a
starting point for further analysis in itself. Management should be aware that certain
ratios based on translated data may provide incorrect signals due to the translation
process.

The choice of remeasurement versus translation does not affect cash flow statement
totals. Current period cash flows are always converted at current period exchange rates,
repetitive cash transactions at the weighted average rate, large discrete cash transactions
at the rates in effect when the transactions occurred. But in the operating section, if the
indirect approach is used, remeasured depreciation and inventory adjustments will likely
P7.8
a.
Appearance of the currency translation adjustment as a component of other
comprehensive income in stockholders' equity indicates that the functional currency of
Asiamart’s Hong Kong subsidiaries is the Hong Kong dollar. Thus the translation
adjustments relating to these subsidiaries are carried directly to AOCI in stockholders'
equity, bypassing the income statement.
b.
The following analysis assumes Asiamart’s Hong Kong subsidiaries had positive local
currency net assets (assets > liabilities) during this time period. In 2006 and 2007, the
translation adjustment is positive (gain), meaning that the dollar on average weakened
against the Hong Kong dollar (direct exchange rates increased) and translated net assets
also increased. In 2008, the translation adjustment is negative (loss), so the dollar on
average strengthened against the Hong Kong dollar.
c.
The net currency translation adjustment balance at January 1, 2006 is positive (gain),
implying that the dollar on average weakened against the Hong Kong dollar (exchange
rates increased) for periods prior to 2006. However, the cumulative translation gain at
January 1, 2006 is small in relation to the gains reported in 2006 and 2007, indicating that
in prior years the exchange rate either did not change as much or may have decreased in
prior years.
Solutions Manual, Chapter 7
29
d.
In order to measure the earnings impact of remeasurement, we must make an assumption
about the nature of the Hong Kong subsidiaries’ exposed position under remeasurement.
A reasonable assumption is that assets measured at fair value (current money prices) are
less than liabilities, creating a negative (liability) exposure to exchange rate changes.
Since exchange rates decreased in 2008, there would be a remeasurement gain reported
in income on the net liability exposure, since Asiamart’s net liability exposure is
remeasured at lower current rates.
Depreciation and amortization are remeasured at historical rates. In the years 2006 and
2007, rates increased. The initial balance in the currency translation adjustment as of the
beginning of 2006 is also positive, implying that rates have on average increased in the
past, and historical rates were lower. Although rates declined in 2008, this is unlikely to
completely reverse the net impact on remeasured expenses. Using lower historical rates
to remeasure depreciation and amortization produces a positive effect on income.
Cost of goods sold is most likely dominated by purchases made in the current year, and
therefore the remeasured amount is unlikely to differ significantly from the translated
amount. Liquidation of old LIFO layers could create significant differences.
In summary, then, historical rates are lower than current or average rates for Asiamart’s
Hong Kong subsidiaries. So expenses remeasured at historical rates, such as depreciation
and amortization, are lower than expenses measured at average rates. The table below
shows the impact of remeasured expenses and the remeasurement gain on net income.
Expenses remeasured at historical rates
Inclusion of remeasurement gain in income
Impact on 2008

Asiamart’s remeasured 2008 net income therefore is likely to be higher than its translated
income. Asiamart’s operating income, excluding the remeasurement gain, is also higher.

P7.12 Hyperinflationary Economy, U.S. GAAP and IFRS
a.
Because the local currency is highly inflationary, U.S. GAAP requires remeasurement of
the subsidiary’s LC accounts into the reporting currency, U.S. dollars, even though the
local currency is the subsidiary’s functional currency. Remeasurement of the December
31, 2014 balance sheet is as follows:
Account
Cash
Plant assets, net
Liabilities
Capital stock
Sales revenue
Out of pocket operating expenses
Depreciation expense
