Section A – This ONE question is compulsory and MUST be attempted1
Hedra, a public listed company, acquired the following investments:(i)On 1 October 2004, 72 million shares in Salvador for an immediate cash payment of $195 million. Hedra agreedto pay further consideration on 30 September 2005 of $49 million if the post acquisition profits of Salvadorexceeded an agreed figure at that date. Hedra has not accounted for this deferred payment as it did not believeit would be payable, however Salvador’s profits have now exceeded the agreed amount (ignore discounting).Salvador also accepted a $50 million 8% loan from Hedra at the date of its acquisition.(ii)On 1 April 2005, 40 million shares in Aragon by way of a share exchange of two shares in Hedra for eachacquired share in Aragon. The stock market value of Hedra’s shares at the date of this share exchange was$2·50.

The fairvalue of Salvador’s land at the date of acquisition was $20 million in excess of its carrying value. By30 September 2005 this excess had increased by a further $5 million. Salvador’s buildings did not requireany fair value adjustments. The fair value of Hedra’s own land and buildings at 30 September 2005 was$12 million in excess of its carrying value in the above balance sheet.(ii)The fair value of some of Salvador’s plant at the date of acquisition was $20 million in excess of its carryingvalue and had a remaining life of four years (straight-line depreciation is used).2
(iii)At the date of acquisition Salvador had unrelieved tax losses of $40 million from previous years. Salvadorhad not accounted for these as a deferred tax asset as its directors did not believe the company would besufficiently profitable in the near future. However, the directors of Hedra were confident that these losseswould be utilised and accordingly they should be recognised as a deferred tax asset. By 30 September 2005the group had not yet utilised any of these losses. The income tax rate is 25%.(b)The retained earnings of Salvador and Aragon at 1 October 2004, as reported in their separate financialstatements, were $20 million and $200 million respectively. All profits are deemed to accrue evenly throughoutthe year.(c)An impairment test on 30 September 2005 showed that consolidated goodwill should be written down by$20 million. Hedra has applied IFRS 3
