The Income Statement, Comprehensive Income, and the Statement of Cash Flows

AACSB assurance of learning standards in accounting and business education require documentation of outcomes assessment. Although schools, departments, and faculty may approach assessment and its documentation differently, one approach is to provide specific questions on exams that become the basis for assessment. To aid faculty in this endeavor, we have labeled each question, exercise, and problem in Intermediate Accounting, 7e, with the following AACSB learning skills: Questions

QUESTIONS FOR REVIEW OF KEY TOPICS


Question 41
The income statement is a change statement that reports transactionsrevenues, expenses, gains, and lossesthat cause owners equity to change during a specified reporting period.

Question 42
Income from continuing operations includes the revenue, expense, gain, and loss transactions that will probably continue in future periods. It is important to segregate the income effects of these items because they are the most important transactions in terms of predicting future cash flows.

Question 43
Operating income includes revenues and expenses and gains and losses that are directly related to the principal revenue generating activities of the company. Nonoperating income includes items that are not directly related to these activities.

Question 44
The single-step format first lists all revenues and gains included in income from continuing operations to arrive at total revenues and gains. All expenses and losses are then grouped and subtotaled, subtracted from revenues and gains to arrive at income from continuing operations. The multiple-step format reports a series (multiple) of intermediate totals such as gross profit, operating income, and income before taxes. Very often income statements adopt variations of these formats, falling somewhere in between the two extremes.

Question 45
The term earnings quality refers to the ability of reported earnings (income) to predict a companys future earnings. After all, an income statement simply reports on events that already have occurred. The relevance of any historical-based financial statement hinges on its predictive value.

Question 46
Restructuring costs include costs associated with shutdown or relocation of facilities or downsizing of operations. They are reported as an operating expense in the income statement.

Question 47
The process of intraperiod tax allocation matches tax expense or tax benefit with each major component of income, specifically continuing operations and any item reported below continuing operations. The process is necessary to achieve the desired result of separating the total income effects of continuing operations from the two separately reported itemsdiscontinued operations and extraordinary itemsand also to show the after-tax effect of each of those two components.

Answers to Questions (continued) Question 48


The net-of-tax income effects of a discontinued operation must be disclosed separately in the income statement, below income from continuing operations. The income effects include income (loss) from operations and gain (loss) on disposal. The gain or loss on disposal must be disclosed either on the face of the statement or in a disclosure note. If the component is held for sale but not sold by the end of the reporting period, the income effects will include income (loss) from operations and an impairment loss if the fair value less costs to sell is less than the book value of the components assets. The income (loss) from operations of the component is reported separately in discontinued operations on prior income statements presented for comparative purposes.

Question 49
Extraordinary items are material gains and losses that are both unusual in nature and infrequent in occurrence, taking into account the environment in which the entity operates.

Question 410
Extraordinary gains and losses are presented, net of tax, in the income statement below discontinued operations, if any.

Answers to Questions (continued) Question 411


GAAP permit alternative treatments for similar transactions. Common examples are the choice among FIFO, LIFO, and average cost for the measurement of inventory and the choice among alternative revenue recognition methods. A change in accounting principle occurs when a company changes from one generally accepted treatment to another. In general, we report voluntary changes in accounting principles retrospectively. This means revising all previous periods financial statements as if the new method were used in those periods. In other words, for each year in the comparative statements reported, we revise the balance of each account affected. Specifically, we make those statements appear as if the newly adopted accounting method had been applied all along. Also, if retained earnings is one of the accounts whose balance requires adjustment (and it usually is), we revise the beginning balance of retained earnings for the earliest period reported in the comparative statements of shareholders equity (or statements of retained earnings if theyre presented instead). Then we create a journal entry to adjust all account balances affected as of the date of the change. In the first set of financial statements after the change, a disclosure note would describe the change and justify the new method as preferable. It also would describe the effects of the change on all items affected, including the fact that the retained earnings balance was revised in the statement of shareholders equity along with the cumulative effect of the change in retained earnings. An exception is a change in depreciation, amortization, or depletion method. These changes are accounted for as a change in estimate, rather than as a change in accounting principle. Changes in estimates are accounted for prospectively. The remaining book value is depreciated, amortized, or depleted, using the new method, over the remaining useful life.

Question 412
A change in accounting estimate is accounted for in the year of the change and in subsequent periods; prior years financial statements are not restated. A disclosure note should justify that the change is preferable and should describe the effect of a change on any financial statement line items and per share amounts affected for all periods reported.

Question 413
Prior period adjustments are accounted for by restating prior years financial statements when those statements are presented again for comparison purposes. The beginning of period retained earnings is increased or decreased on the statement of shareholders equity (or the statement of retained earnings) as of the beginning of the earliest period presented.

Answers to Questions (continued) Question 414


Earnings per share (EPS) is the amount of income achieved during a period for each share of common stock outstanding. If there are different components of income reported below continuing operations, their effects on earnings per share must be disclosed. If a period contains discontinued operations and extraordinary items, EPS data must be reported separately for income from continuing operations and net income. Per share amounts for discontinued operations and extraordinary items would be disclosed on the face of the income statement.

Question 415
Comprehensive income is the total change in equity for a reporting period other than from transactions with owners. Reporting comprehensive income can be accomplished with a continuous statement of comprehensive income that includes an income statement and other comprehensive income items or in two statements, an income statement and a separate statement of comprehensive income.

Question 416
The purpose of the statement of cash flows is to provide information about the cash receipts and cash disbursements of an enterprise during a period. Similar to the income statement, it is a change statement, summarizing the transactions that caused cash to change during a particular period of time.

Question 417
The three categories of cash flows reported on the statement of cash flows are: 1. Operating activitiesInflows and outflows of cash related to the transactions entering into the determination of net income from operations. 2. Investing activitiesInvolve the acquisition and sale of (1) long-term assets used in the business and (2) nonoperating investment assets. 3. Financing activitiesInvolve cash inflows and outflows from transactions with creditors and owners.

Question 418
Noncash investing and financing activities are transactions that do not increase or decrease cash but are important investing and financing activities. An example would be the acquisition of property, plant, and equipment (an investing activity) by issuing either long-term debt or equity securities (a financing activity). These activities are reported either on the face of the statement of cash flows or in a disclosure note.

Question 419
The direct method of reporting cash flows from operating activities presents the cash effect of each operating activity directly on the statement of cash flows. The indirect method of reporting cash flows from operating activities is derived indirectly, by starting with reported net income and adding and subtracting items to convert that amount to a cash basis.
The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2013 46 Intermediate Accounting, 7/e

Answers to Questions (concluded) Question 420


There are two possible separately reported items that could appear in income statements, discontinued operations and extraordinary items. International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) prohibit reporting extraordinary items.

Question 421
U.S. GAAP designates cash outflows for interest payments and cash inflows from interest and dividends received as operating cash flows. Dividends paid to shareholders are classified as financing cash flows. IFRS allows more flexibility. Companies can report interest and dividends paid as either operating or financing cash flows and interest and dividends received as either operating or investing cash flows. Interest and dividend payments usually are reported as financing activities. Interest and dividends received normally are classified as investing activities.

Exercise 413
Cash collected for interest, considered an operating cash flow by U.S. GAAP, could be classified as either an operating cash flow or an investing cash flow according to International Accounting Standards. Cash paid for interest, considered an operating cash flow by U.S. GAAP, could be classified as either an operating cash flow or a financing cash flow according to International Accounting Standards. Cash paid for dividends, considered a financing cash flow by U.S. GAAP, could be classified as either an operating cash flow or a financing cash flow according to International Accounting Standards. Accordingly, the statement of cash flows prepared according to IFRS could be the same as under U.S. GAAP (E412) or could be presented as follows: BLUEBONNET BAKERS Statement of Cash Flows For the Year Ended December 31, 2013 Cash flows from operating activities: Collections from customers $ 380,000 Purchase of inventory (160,000) Payment of salaries (90,000) Payment of dividends (20,000) Net cash flows from operating activities Cash flows from investing activities: Collection of note receivable Interest on note receivable Sale of investments Purchase of equipment Net cash flows from investing activities 50,000 6,000 30,000 (85,000) 1,000

Exercise 417
Consistent with U.S. GAAP, international standards also require a statement of cash flows. Consistent with U.S. GAAP, cash flows are classified as operating, investing, or financing. However, the U.S. standard designates cash outflows for interest payments and cash inflows from interest and dividends received as operating cash flows. Dividends paid to shareholders are classified as financing cash flows. IAS No. 7, on the other hand, allows more flexibility. Companies can report interest and dividends paid as either operating or financing cash flows and interest and dividends received as either operating or investing cash flows. Interest and dividend payments usually are reported as financing activities. Interest and dividends received normally are classified as investing activities. Accordingly, the statement of cash flows prepared according to IFRS mostly likely would be presented as follows (differences from U.S. GAAP in italics):

Requirement 1 FASB ASC 260: Earnings per Share. Requirement 2 The specific citation that describes the additional information for earnings per share that must be included in the notes to the financial statements is FASB ASC 260 10501: Earnings per ShareOverallDisclosure. Requirement 3 For each period for which an income statement is presented, an entity discloses all of the following: a. A reconciliation of the numerators and the denominators of the basic and diluted per-share computations for income from continuing operations. The reconciliation includes the individual income and share amount effects of all securities that affect earnings per share (EPS). Example 2 (see paragraph 260105551) illustrates that disclosure. (See paragraph 26010453.) An entity is encouraged to refer to pertinent information about securities included in the EPS computations that is provided elsewhere in the financial statements as prescribed by Subtopic 505-10. b. The effect that has been given to preferred dividends in arriving at income available to common stockholders in computing basic EPS. c. Securities (including those issuable pursuant to contingent stock agreements) that could potentially dilute basic EPS in the future that were not included in the computation of diluted EPS because to do so would have been antidilutive for the period(s) presented. Full disclosure of the terms and conditions of these securities is required even if a security is not included in diluted EPS in the current period. For the latest period for which an income statement is presented, an entity must provide a description of any transaction that occurs after the end of the most recent period but before issuance of the financial statements that would have changed materially the number of common shares or potential common shares outstanding at the end of the period if the transaction had occurred before the end of the period. Examples of those transactions include the issuance or acquisition of common shares; the issuance of warrants, options, or convertible securities; the resolution of a contingency pursuant to a contingent stock agreement; and the conversion or exercise of potential common shares outstanding at the end of the period into common shares.

The FASB Accounting Standards Codification represents the single source of authoritative U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The specific citation for each of the following items is: 1. The criteria for determining if a gain or loss should be reported as an extraordinary item: FASB ASC 22520452: Income StatementExtraordinary and Unusual ItemsOther Presentation MattersCriteria for Presentation as Extraordinary. Extraordinary items are events and transactions that are distinguished by their unusual nature and by the infrequency of their occurrence. Thus, both of the following criteria shall be met to classify an event or transaction as an extraordinary item: a. Unusual nature. The underlying event or transaction should possess a high degree of abnormality and be of a type clearly unrelated to, or only incidentally related to, the ordinary and typical activities of the entity, taking into account the environment in which the entity operates. b. Infrequency of occurrence. The underlying event or transaction should be of a type that would not reasonably be expected to recur in the foreseeable future, taking into account the environment in which the entity operates. 2. The calculation of the weighted average number of shares for basic earnings per share purposes: FASB ASC 26010552: Earnings per ShareOverallImplementation Guidance and IllustrationComputing a Weighted Average. The weighted-average number of shares is an arithmetical mean average of shares outstanding and assumed to be outstanding for EPS computations. The most precise average would be the sum of the shares determined on a daily basis divided by the number of days in the period. Less-precise averaging methods may be used, however, as long as they produce reasonable results. Methods that introduce artificial weighting, such as the Rule of 78 method, are not acceptable for computing a weighted-average number of shares for EPS computations.

Problem 44
1. Restructuring is an example of an event that is either unusual or infrequent, but not both. Restructuring costs should be included in income from continuing operations but reported as a separate income statement component. The item is reported gross, not net of tax as with extraordinary gains and losses. 2. The extraordinary gain should be presented, net of tax, in the income statement below income from continuing operations. Also, earnings per share for income from continuing operations and for the extraordinary item should be disclosed. 3. The correction of the error should be treated as a prior period adjustment to beginning retained earnings, not as an adjustment to current year's cost of goods sold. In addition, the 2012 financial statements should be restated to reflect the correction, and a disclosure note is required that communicates the impact of the error on 2012 income.

CASES
Judgment Case 41
Requirement 1 The term earnings quality refers to the ability of reported earnings (income) to predict a companys future earnings. After all, an income statement simply reports on events that already have occurred. The relevance of any historical-based financial statement hinges on its predictive value. Requirement 2 To enhance predictive value, analysts try to separate a companys transitory earnings effects from its permanent earnings. Transitory earnings effects result from transactions or events that are not likely to occur again in the foreseeable future, or that are likely to have a different impact on earnings in the future. Requirement 3 An often-debated contention is that, within GAAP, managers have the power, to a limited degree, to manipulate reported company income. And the manipulation is not always in the direction of higher income. Many believe that manipulating income reduces earnings quality because it can mask permanent earnings. Requirement 4 You would consider the size of the gain in relation to net income, the size of the companys investment portfolio, and the frequency of gains and losses from the sale of investment securities in past years. The main objective is to determine the likelihood of this type of gain occurring again in the future.

Judgment Case 42
Requirement 1 Restructuring costs include costs associated with shutdown or relocation of facilities or downsizing of operations. Facility closings and related employee layoffs translate into costs incurred for severance pay and relocation costs as well as asset write-downs or write-offs. Requirement 2 Prior to 2003, restructuring costs were recognized (expensed) in the period the decision to restructure was made, not in the period or periods in which the actual activities took place. Now, restructuring costs are expensed in the period(s) incurred. Requirement 3 Restructuring costs would be included as an operating expense in a multi-step income statement. Requirement 4 An analyst must interpret restructuring charges in light of a companys past history in this area. Information in disclosure notes describing the restructuring and management plans related to the business involved also can be helpful.

Judgment Case 43
No. Companies generally prefer to report earnings that follow a smooth, regular, upward path. They try to avoid declines, but they also want to avoid increases that vary wildly from year to year. It is better to have two years of 15% earnings increases than a 30% gain one year and none the next. As a result, some companies bank earnings by understating them in particularly good years and use the banked profits to increase earnings in bad years.

Real World Case 44


Requirement 1 Companies often voluntarily provide a pro forma earnings number when they announce annual or quarterly earnings calculated according to GAAP. These pro forma earnings numbers are managements view of permanent earnings. These pro forma earnings numbers are controversial as they represent managements biased view of permanent earnings and should be interpreted in that light. Requirement 2 The term earnings quality refers to the ability of reported earnings (income) to predict a companys future earnings. Management believes that pro forma earnings are of much higher quality than reported earnings because they are more indicative of future profitability.

Communication Case 45
The critical question that student groups should address is whether or not the gain on the sale of the timber tracts should be reported as an extraordinary item on the 2013 income statement. There is no right or wrong answer. The process of developing the proposed solutions will likely be more beneficial than the solutions themselves. Students should benefit from participating in the process, interacting first with other group members, then with the class as a whole. Solutions should address the following issues: 1. Is the gain material? A consensus should be reached that the gain is material. 2. Is the event both unusual and infrequent? Debate should center on the critical issue of whether the event is likely to occur again in the foreseeable future. 3. If the event is deemed to require presentation as an extraordinary item, the gain should be reported net of tax below income from continuing operations. A disclosure note also is required and earnings per share disclosure should reflect the income statement presentation. As a real world example of a similar situation, in 1974 Johns Manville Corporation, manufacturer of asbestos products, reported a $21 million extraordinary gain from the sale of timber tracts. No disclosure note was provided to explain the event, so we can only speculate as to the circumstances leading to the company's presentation of the gain as extraordinary. It is important that each student actively participate in the process. Domination by one or two individuals should be discouraged. Students should be encouraged to contribute to the group discussion by (a) offering information on relevant issues, and (b) clarifying or modifying ideas already expressed, or (c) suggesting alternative direction.

Case 46 (continued) The following is provided as an example. August 1990 TO: Chief Financial Officer, Carter Hawley Hale Stores (CHHS)

FROM: John Doe, Controller (CHHS) RE: Income Statement treatment of October 17, 1989, earthquake damage costs.

A decision on the income statement treatment of the earthquake damage costs involves a number of considerations. First, the damage costs are clearly material. Inclusion of the costs in earnings results in an increase in the net loss for the fiscal year ended August 4, 1990, from $9.47 million to $25.97 million. This leaves us only two options for the income statement presentation of the loss: 1. Present the before-tax amount of the loss ($27.5 million) as a separate line item in the income statement. 2. Present the after-tax effect of the loss ($16.5 million) as an extraordinary item, below income from continuing operations. In both cases, a disclosure note would be required to explain the loss. The appropriate authoritative pronouncement pertaining to this case is FASB ASC 2252045: Income StatementExtraordinary and Unusual ItemsOther Presentation Matters (previously Accounting Principles Board Opinion No. 30). It states that judgment is required in determining whether or not an event warrants separate reporting in the income statement as an extraordinary item. However, the following broad guideline is provided in paragraph 2:
Extraordinary items are events and transactions that are distinguished by their unusual nature and by the infrequency of their occurrence.

The characteristics of unusual nature and infrequency of occurrence must be considered in light of the environment in which the company operates. These characteristics are only aids in answering the important question: What is the likelihood that this event will occur again in the foreseeable future? If it is not likely to occur again, then this should be communicated to financial statement users by segregating the income effect of the event as an extraordinary item. This will help them in using the income statement to predict future cash flows.
The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2013 468 Intermediate Accounting, 7/e

Case 46 (concluded) RECOMMENDATION I recommend that the earthquake damage costs be treated as an extraordinary loss, net of tax, in the income statement for the fiscal year ended August 4, 1990. In addition, earnings per share for income both before and after the loss must be presented. While many earthquakes do occur in California, extremely large earthquakes causing significant amounts of damage are both unusual and infrequent. I do not believe that this type of loss will occur again in the foreseeable future.

Ethics Case 47
Discussion should include these elements. Facts: The company incurred $10 million in expenses related to a product recall. The company had experienced product recalls in the past and they do occur in the industry. To show a profit from continuing operations, Jim Dietz, the controller, wants to report the $10 million as an extraordinary loss, rather than as an expense included in operating income. He tells the CEO that the company has never had a product recall of this magnitude and that the company fixed the design flaw and upgraded quality control. Extraordinary items are gains and losses that are material, and result from events that are both unusual and infrequent. These criteria must be considered in light of the environment in which the entity operates. There obviously is a considerable degree of subjectivity involved in the determination. The concepts of unusual and infrequent require judgment. In making these judgments, an accountant should keep in mind the overall objective of the income statement. The key question is how the event relates to a firms future profitability. If it is judged that the event, because of its unusual nature and infrequency of occurrence, is not likely to occur again, separate reporting as an extraordinary item is warranted. Ethical Dilemma: It appears from the facts of the case that it would be difficult for the company to come to the conclusion that a material product recall is not likely to occur again in the foreseeable future. This type of event has occurred before and is common in the industry. While a subjective judgment, extraordinary treatment of the $10 million does not appear warranted. Is the obligation of Jim and the CEO to maximize income from continuing operations, the company's position on the stock market, and management bonuses stronger than their obligation to fairly present accounting information to the users of financial statements?

1. The loss is not unusual or infrequent. It is included in income from continuing operations along with other nonoperating items. 2. The sale of the financing component is treated as a discontinued operation. The gain or loss from the sale of the assets along with income or loss generated by the component is presented below income from continuing operations. 3. A change in depreciation method is treated as a change in accounting estimate achieved by a change in accounting principle. Changes in estimates are accounted for prospectively. The remaining book value is depreciated, using the new method, over the remaining useful life. 4. This event is not unusual but may be infrequent. It usually is presented as a separate line item included in income from continuing operations. 5. The correction of an error is treated as a prior period adjustment. The effect of the correction is not included in income, but as an adjustment to retained earnings. Prior years financial statements are restated to correct the error. 6. This event requires no unusual treatment. The lipstick line does not qualify as a component of an entity requiring treatment as a discontinued operation.

Judgment Case 413


It would be nice to think that management makes all accounting choices in the best interest of fair and consistent financial reporting. Unfortunately, other motives influence the choices among accounting methods and whether to change methods. It has been suggested that the effect of choices on management compensation, on existing debt agreements, and on union negotiations each can affect managements selection of accounting methods.1 For instance, research has suggested that managers of companies with bonus plans are more likely to choose accounting methods that maximize their bonuses (often those that increase net income).2 Other research has indicated that the existence and nature of debt agreements and other aspects of a firms capital structure can influence accounting choices.3 Whether a company is forbidden from paying dividends if retained earnings fall below a certain level, for example, can affect the choice of accounting methods. Choices made are not always those that tend to increase income. As you will learn in Chapter 8, many companies use the LIFO inventory method because it reduces income and therefore reduces the amount of income taxes that must be paid currently. Also, some very large and visible companies might be reluctant to report high income that might render them vulnerable to union demands, government regulations, or higher taxes.4

Research Case 414


(Note: This case requires the student to reference a journal article.]

Requirement 2 The authors use the S&P 500 companies as their sample. Requirement 3 77% in 2001 and only 54% in 2003. Requirement 4 In 2001, 85% of firms have greater pro forma than GAAP earnings. This ratio declined to 67% in 2003. Requirement 5 In 2001, 136 firms reported Restructuring Charges, and the same number of firms reported a Divestiture/Sale of Business Units. In 2003, the most frequently reported adjustment was Amortization/Impairment of Goodwill and Other Intangibles. Requirement 6 The authors main conclusions are that the introduction of pro forma regulation is associated with a substantial change in firms pro forma reporting. Notably, far fewer firms are reporting pro forma earnings, while those that continue to report appear to do so in a manner consistent with the intention of the regulation, to provide useful information, not to mislead.

Real World Case 417


Answers to the questions will, of course, vary because students will research financial statements of different companies. No specific standards dictate how income from continuing operations must be displayed, so companies have considerable latitude in how they present the components of income from continuing operations. This flexibility has resulted in a considerable variety of income statement presentations. However, we can identify two general approaches, the single-step and the multiple-step formats that might be considered the two extremes, with the income statements of most companies falling somewhere in between. The presentation of separately reported items, however, is mandated and students should be able to easily identify them.

Air FranceKLM Case


Requirement 1 AF classifies its expenses by both natural descriptions (e.g., salaries and related costs, taxes other than income taxes) and functions (e.g., external expenses). In the United States, expenses are classified by function. Requirement 2 AF classifies interest paid and interest received as operating cash flows, and dividends received as an investing cash flow. Under IFRS, companies can report interest paid as either an operating or financing cash flow and interest and dividends received as either operating or investing cash flows.
