2. Minute Corp. follows the provisions of IFRS 9 for its FV-NI and FV-OCI investments, using the FV-NI method for investments acquired for trading purposes, and the FV-OCI method for investments that it intends to hold for their growth potential. For the FV-OCI investments, transaction costs are capitalized, and when gains and losses are realized, they are reclassified to retained earnings. Interest and dividends are not reported separately from other investment income for investments held for trading and accounted for at FV-NI.
The following transactions and events took place during the company's year ended December 31, 2017:
Jan. 2 Sold 1,000 Growthpen shares for $8.50 per share less a $300 commission.
Jan. 3 Purchased 3,600 of the 12,000 outstanding shares of Lloyd Corp. for $234,000. Minute Corp. and Lloyd Corp. managements have worked together on joint projects in the past and Lloyd often asks Minute management for advice on operational and financing issues that Lloyd faces. A review of Lloyd's financial statements on the date these shares were acquired indicated total assets of $1.4 million and total liabilities of $750,000. In addition, the company has an internally developed patent that has a fair value of $60,000 but is unrecorded in the accounts. The patent is likely to have value to Lloyd for another six years.
