Using your Judgement 13-6

YellowCard Company manufactures accessories for iPods. It had the following selected transactions during 2010.

1. YellowCard provides a 2-year warranty on its docking stations, which it began selling in 2014. During 2014 YellowCard spent $6,000 servicing warranty claims. At year-end, YellowCard estimates that an additional $45,000 will be spent in the future to service warranties related to 2014 sales.

2. YellowCard has a $200,000 loan outstanding from First Trust Corp. The loan is set to mature on February 28, 2015. For several years, First Trust has agreed to extend the loan, as long as YellowCard makes all its quarterly interest (interest is due on the last days of each February, May, August, and November) payments and maintains an acid-test ratio (also called ‘quick ratio’) of at least 1.25. First Trust has provided YellowCard a ‘commitment letter’ indicating that First Trust will extend the loan another 12 months, providing YellowCard makes the interest payment due on March 31.

3. During 2013, YellowCard constructed a small manufacturing facility specifically to manufacture one particular accessory. YellowCard paid the construction contractor
$5,000,000 cash (which was the total contract price) and placed the facility into service on January 1, 2014. Because of technological change, Yellowcard anticipates that the manufacturing facility will be useful for no more than ten years. The local government where the facility is located required that, at the end of the ten year period, YellowCard remediate the facility so that it can be used as a community center. YellowCard estimates that the cost of remediation to be $500,000.
