c) Open Market Operation

e) Minority Interest
f) Debt Capital
Ans: a) Sinking Fund: Sinking fund is a fund into which a company sets aside money over time, in order to retire its preferred stock, bonds or debentures. Such fund is created mainly for some specific purposes which are:
1.       To redeem or repay long term liabilities.  For example: debentures, long term loans etc.
2.       To replace wasting assets. For example: mines etc.
3.       To replace an asset of depreciable nature. For example fixed assets.
Creation of Sinking fund for redemption of debentures:
For redemption of debentures or other long term liabilities, a fixed amount is kept aside yearly as sinking fund for the specific purpose and the same amount is invested in securities etc.  for a specific period so that the sufficient amount is available at the time of redemption of long term liabilities. The amount to be set aside can be determined with the help of Sinking fund table. The amount kept aside should not be debited to Profit and loss account but to Profit and loss appropriation account because the same is an allocation of profit not expenditure.
b) Buyback of Shares: Buy-back means the repurchase of its own shares by the company. When a company has substantial cash resources, it may like to buy its own shares from the market, particularly when the prevailing rate of its shares in the market is much lower that the book or what the company perceives to be its true value. This is known as buy back of shares. Buy back procedure thus enables a company to go back to the holders of its shares and offers to purchase from them the shares they hold. The shares thus bought back have to be cancelled.
Objectives of Buy Back: Shares may be bought back by the company on account of one or more of the following reasons:
a)      To increase promoters holding
b)      Increase earnings per share
c)       Rationalise the capital structure by writing off capital not represented by available assets.
d)      Support share value
e)      To takeover bid
f)       To pay surplus cash not required by business
g)      Infact the best strategy to maintain the share price in a bear run is to buy back the shares from the open market at a premium over the prevailing market price.
c) Open Market Operation: Open market operations means deliberate and direct buying and selling of securities and bills in the market by the Central Bank. The open market operations of the RBI are mostly confined to government securities. In order to increase money supply in the market, the RBI purchases securities in the open market. On the other hand, in order to contract credit, the RBI starts selling the securities in the open market.
d) Capital Reserve: Capital Reserve: It is that part of reserves which is create out of capital profits and normally not available for distribution as dividend. Features of capital reserve:
It is that part of the reserves which is not free for distribution as dividend.
It is created out of capital profits.
Capital Reserve is mandatory to be created in case of profit on reissue of forfeited shares.
Capital Reserve is to be shown in liability side of the balance sheet of the company under the heading of ’Reserve and Surplus.’
Capital Reserve is used to write off capital losses and to issue bonus shares to shareholder.

e) Minority Interest: When some of the shares in the subsidiary are held by outside shareholders they will be entitled to a proportionate share in the assets and liabilities of that company. The share of the outsider in the subsidiary is called minority interest.
Amount of minority interest is calculated by adding subsidiary company’s share in pre-acquisition profit, post-acquisition profit and in share capital of the company. Preference share capital to the extent of not purchased by holding company is also added with minority interest. In the consolidated balance sheet all the assets and liabilities of the subsidiary   are consolidated with assets and liabilities of the holding company and the minority interest representing the interest of the outsider in the subsidiary is shown as a liability.
f) Debt Capital: According to Sec. 2 (30) of the companies Act, 2013, debentures include “debenture stock, bonds and any other securities of a company evidencing a debt, whether constituting a charge on the assets of the company or not. Debentures are debt instruments issued by a joint stock company. Amounts collected by way of debentures form part of the loan capital of a company. This capital is also called debt capital. They are repayable after a fixed period. Debenture holders get interest on their debentures. They are creditors of the company. They do not get dividend. Only shareholders get dividend.

(b) (i) How is purchase consideration determined? What are the different ways of discharging the purchase consideration?                                    8
Ans: Purchase Consideration – Methods for calculation
Purchase Consideration refers to the consideration payable by the purchasing company to the vendor company for taking over the assets and liabilities of Vendor Company.
Accounting Standard – 14 defines the term purchase consideration as the “aggregate of the shares and other securities issued and the payment made in the form of ach or other assets by the transferee company to the shareholders of the transferor company”. Although, purchase consideration refers to total payment made by purchasing company to the shareholders of Vendor Company, its calculation could be in different methods, as explained below:
a. Lump sum method
b. Net Assets method
c. Net Payment Method
a. Lump sum Method: Under this method purchase consideration will be paid in lump sum as per the valuation of purchasing companies valuation. E.g., if it is stated that A Ltd. takes over the business of B Ltd. for Rs.15, 00,000 here the sum of the Rs.15, 00,000 is the Purchase Consideration.
b. Net Assets Method: Under this method P.C. shall be computed as follows:
Particulars
Rs.
Agreed value of assets taken over
Less: Agreed value of Liabilities taken over
XXX
XXX
Purchase Consideration
XXX
Note: i. The term “agreed value” means the amount at which the transferor company has agreed to sell and the transferee company has agreed to take over a particular assets or a liability Otherwise book value will be the agreed value.
ii. Fictitious assets (i.e., preliminary expenses, underwriting commission, discount on issue of shares, discount on issue of debentures and debit balance in P & L A/c) are not taken over.
c. Net Payment Method: Under this method P.C. should be calculated by aggregating total payments made by the purchasing company. E.g.: A Ltd. had taken over B Ltd. and for that it agreed to pay Rs.5, 00,000 in cash 4, 00,000 Equity Shares of Rs.10 each fully paid at an agreed value of Rs.15 per share then the P.C. will be ascertained as follows:
Particulars

Cash
4,00,000 E. Shares of Rs.10 each fully paid, at Rs.15 per share
5,00,000
60,00,000
Purchase Consideration
65,00,000

(ii) Explain the treatment of reserves of amalgamation in the nature of merger and amalgamation in the nature of purchase.                              6
Ans: When amalgamation is in the nature of merger, there is no distinction between statutory or other reserves. In this type of amalgamation, the identity of the reserves of the transferor company is preserved and they appear in the financial statements of the transferee company in the same form in which they appeared in the financial statements of the transferor company.
If the amalgamation is an ‘amalgamation in the nature of purchase’, the identity of the reserves, other than the statutory reserves, is not preserved. Only the statutory reserve of Transferor Company is transferred to the transferee company’s balance sheet. The amount of the purchase consideration is deducted from the value of the net assets of the transferor company acquired by the transferee company. If the result of the computation is negative, the difference is debited to goodwill arising on amalgamation and if the result of the computation is positive, the difference is credited to capital reserve account.
5. (a) (i)                Write a note on modes of winding-up of a company.                                                              4
(ii) XYZ Ltd. went into voluntary liquidation on 31st March, 2013. The position of the  company on that date was as follows :
Share Capital – 500 Equity shares of Rs. 10 each, Rs. 8 per share called up
40,000

Preferential
  5,000
Non-Preferential
25,000
Secured Creditors
(secured on Plant & Machinery)
15,000
Cash in Hand
  1,000
Plant & Machinery finally realized Rs. 10,000 and other assets realized Rs. 10,000.
