This would be for the Ethics case 3.

Ethics Case 3

Shenandoah Furniture Company is a small publicly traded company.  The Company pays annual bonuses based on a percentage of net income.  Randolph Hundley, the controller of Shenandoah Furniture Company, has noticed that the Company holds equity securities in a variety of companies that were purchased as strategic investments. A few of these securities are currently valued above cost, but most are valued below cost at the current time.  Hundley suggests to his assistant, Todd that they should treat the securities with unrealized gains as trading securities and those with unrealized losses should be treated differently—with the unrealized losses being reported in other comprehensive income.

Instructions

Answer the following questions:

· Will Hundley’s suggestion, improve the company’s net income (loss)?

· Is there anything unethical about Hundley’s suggestion?

· Who are the stakeholders that would be affected by this decision?

The decision will have an impact on the company’s net income because it will lead to recording of unrealized gains in the net income while the losses will be recorded in the OCI.

This is unethical because the decision aims at matching with the interests of the management. The action only aims at recording securities with an inherent gain as trading securities, which would increase net income and as a result management will earn more bonuses. Financial information should not demonstrate any alienation but should represent the fact about the company by being neutral.

Some of the stakeholders affected include other managers who do not know what has happened, independent auditors, shareholders, and investors who wanted to save in the company.
