Huge bought 90% of the shares of Sub at $8 per share, several years ago. This year, it sells 10% of Sub’s stock for $9 per share. Huge still has control. Which of the following statements is correct, under GAAP, for the consolidated statements?
Huge will report a gain, in net income, of $1 per share sold
Huge will report a gain, in comprehensive income, of $1 per share sold
Huge will record an increase in paid-in capital of $1 per share sold
Huge will not make any entry to record this transaction.
The correct answer is "a" as$ 1 per share sold is a realised income or gain, hence will be shown in income statement.
Option b is incorrect as unrealised gain or loss is shown under comprehensive income if the investment is still under play.
Option C is incorrect as the question is talking about investment in other entity not the shared issued by an entity so no changes in paid up capital
Option D is incorrect as the transaction has been held so will be recorded.
