Bijan Toufighi, CPA, CA, 2020Speed IncStatement of Financial PositionJanuary 1, 2020(In USD)Book ValueFair ValueCurrent Assets1,000,000 1,200,000 Current Liabilities600,000 700,000 Ordinary Shares300,000 Retained Earnings100,000 A business valuator (CBV) has estimated the fair values that were not recorded on the accounting records. The CBV has valued SI’s brand at a fair value of $3,000,000USD, with an indefinite useful life. The brands have both been legally trademarked. SI’s workforce has been valued at $1,000,000USD. SI has a patentfor its web-conferencing technology. This technology is utilized to generate subscription revenue. The patent has a legal life of 25 years, and the CBV estimates that the technology will be obsolete in 5 years. The patent has an estimated value of $5,000,000USD.SI is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. A majority of its customers pay in USD. The Company’s payroll costs are entirely paid in CAD. SI’soperating costs are in USD other than its rent costs.Webcam Corp. (“WC”)VCpurchased 15% of the shares of Webcam Corp.(WC)on February 1, 2020for $1,000,000. WC manufacturers high quality webcams for business and individual consumers. VCpurchased the shares of WCto develop strategic partnerships with its other future technology investments. VC’sChief Operating Officer joined the board of WCand is also acting as the Chief Operating Officer for WCuntil the Company finds a suitable full time Chief Operating Officer. WCgenerated an income of $25,000from February 1, 2020 to June 30, 2020, This came to a surprise to the management of VC, as VC was expecting a much stronger performance, especially with the increasedprospect of sales due to COVID-19. VC is a private company, therefore no share data is available, however VC management believes it has significantly overpaid for the WC shares.VC is considering purchasing the remaining 85% of shares of WCat a lower price per share to help turnaround operations in the future. The sale of webcams is distinctly different than conferenceservicesprovided by SI, and the CEO would be monitoring this performance separately.
