Ace Company reports current earnings of \$400,000 while paying \$40,000 in cash dividends. Byrd Company earns \$100,000 in net income and distributes \$10,000 in dividends. Ace has held a 70 percent interest in Byrd for several years, an investment that it originally purchased at a price equal to the book value of the underlying net assets. Ace uses the cost method to account for these shares. On January 1 of the current year, Byrd acquired in the open market \$50,000 of Ace's 8 percent bonds. The bonds had originally been issued several years ago for 92, reflecting a 10 percent effective interest rate. On the date of purchase, the book value of the bonds payable was \$48,300. Byrd paid \$46,600 based on a 12 percent effective interest rate over the remaining life of the bonds.
