As on December 31, 2018 share was trading on the open market for $12.50 per share
As such at year end, since the share value has increased, unrealized gain will be reported in Other Comprehensive income (OCI).
Unrealized gain = 5,000 * ($12.50 - $10) = $12,500
Unrealized gain that will be reported in OCI at year end = $12,500
