Revenue Cost of sales Gross profit Distribution costs Administrative expenses Other income Profit before tax Income tax expense Profit for the year

Additional information 1. KL acquired 70% of the ordinary share capital of LM on 1 January 2009 for $8,200,000. At the date of acquisition the net assets of LM were assessed to have a fair value of $10,000,000. The only fair value adjustment required on acquisition related to depreciable assets (see note2 below). The group policy is to value non-controlling interest at fair value at the date of acquisition. The fair value of the non-controlling interest at the date of acquisition was $2,200,000. At the date of acquisition, depreciable assets of LM with a remaining useful life at that date of 6 years had a fair value of $240,000 more than their book value. The group policy is to depreciate non-current assets on a straight line basis over their remaining economic useful life. Depreciation is charged to administrative expenses. No impairment of goodwill arose in the year ended 31 December 2009, however an impairment review conducted on 31 December 2010 showed goodwill being impaired by 15%. Impairment losses are charged to administrative expenses. KL acquired 40% of the ordinary share capital of NP on 1 October 2010. KL is now able to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of NP. During the year to 31 December 2010, KL and LM paid ordinary dividends of $300,000 and $100,000 respectively. Income from investments is included within other income. LM sold goods to KL on 1 November 2010 with a sales value of $140,000. Half of these goods remain in KL’s inventories at the year end. LM makes 20% profit margin on all sales.
