Campos employs the FIFO inventory method, and inventory layers during the second half of 2016 consisted of the following: 150,000 FC, 220,000 FC, and 210,000 FC, acquired during the second through fourth quarters of 2016, respectively. All depreciable assets were acquired on June 30, 2015.

Determine the amount that Magnum Ventures should report for its investment in Champos Corporation as of December 31, 2016, under the sophisticated equity method.
