On 1 July 2020 Octavio Ltd acquired some corporate bonds

On 1 July 2020 Octavio Ltd acquired some corporate bonds issued by Garnish Ltd. These bonds cost $11,682,000. They had a ‘face value’ of $10 million and offered a coupon rate of 10 per cent paid annually ($1 000 000 per year, paid on 30 June). The bonds would repay the principal of $10 million on 30 June 2025. At the time the market only required a rate of return on 6 per cent on such bonds. We will assume that the market’s required rate of return on these financial instruments remains at 6 per cent throughout the life of the bonds. Octavio Ltd operates within a business model where bonds are held in order to collect contractual cash flows and there is no intention to trade them. Assume that there were no direct costs associated with acquiring the bonds. (The use of Present Value and Annuity tables are required. Please refer Appendix A & B of your prescribed textbook)
1. Explain why the company was prepared to pay $11 682 000 for the bonds given that, apart from the interest, they expect to receive only $10 million back in five years.

(c) On 1 July 2018, Jack, John and Jill formed the J, J and J partnership. Jack invested $21000, John $35 000 and Jill $44 000. Jack will manage the store, John will work in the store three-quarters of the time, and Jill won’t work in the business.
1. Calculate the partners’ shares of profits and losses under each of the following plans:

a. Loss for the year ended 30 June 2019 is $42 000 and the partnership agreement allocates 45% of profits to Jack, 35% to John and 20% to Jill. The agreement doesn’t discuss the sharing of losses. (4 Marks)
b. Profit for the year ended 30 June 2019 is $97 000. The first $25 000 is allocated on the basis of relative partner capital balances. The next $48 000 is based on service, with $38000 going to Jack and $10 000 going to John. Any remainder is shared equally.
2. Revenues for the year ended 30 June 2019 were $209 000 and expenses were $112 000. Using plan b above, prepare the partnership income statement for the year (and showing each partner’s share of the profit or loss for the year).
