On January 1, 2019, Drennen Inc. issued $4.1 million face amount of 10-year, 14% stated rate bonds when market interest rates were 12%. The bonds pay semiannual interest each June 30 and December 31 and mature on December 31, 2028.
b-1. Assume instead that the proceeds were $4,029,000. Use the horizontal model to record the payment of semiannual interest and the related discount amortization on June 30, 2019, assuming that the discount of $71,000 is amortized on a straight-line basis. Indicate the financial statement effect. (Enter decreases with a minus sign to indicate a negative financial statement effect.)
Financial statement effect:
Amortization of discount as on June 30, 2019 = ($71,000 / 10)/2 = $3,550
Payment of cash toward interest = $4,100,000×14% / 2 = $287,000
Interest expense = $287,000 + 3,550 = $290,550
