Question

Purpose: To help familiarize you with the financial reporting of a real company in order to further your understanding of the chapter material you are learning.
This case will help you to better understand the effect of adjusting journal entries on the financial statements. You know that adjusting journal entries are entered in the journal and then posted to the ledger accounts. We do not have access to the journals and ledgers used by Columbia Sportswear, but we can see some of the adjusted accounts on the company’s financial statements. Refer to the Columbia Sportswear income statements, “Statements of Operations,” and the Columbia Sportswear balance sheets, in Appendix A . Also find footnote 6 titled “Property, Plant, and Equipment, Net” and footnote 9 titled “Accrued Liabilities,” which are two of the many footnotes included after the financial statements.
