Prepare a corrected December 31, 2014, balance sheet for Hopkins Company.
Hopkins' bank is considering granting an additional loan in the amount of $45,000, which will be due December 31, 2015. How can the information in the balance sheet provide useful information to the bank about Hopkins' ability to repay the loan?
In the upcoming meeting with the bank, Hopkins plans to provide additional information about the fair value of its equipment and some internally generated intangible assets related to its customer lists. This information indicates that Hopkins has significant unrealized gains on these assets, which are not reflected on the balance sheet. What objections is the bank likely to raise about the usefulness of this information in evaluating Hopkins for the loan renewal?
