Foreign currency risk | Accounting homework help

 

Albert, CEO of XYZ, Inc., desires to expand the company’s sales  through exports to three foreign subsidiaries. Albert knows that the  target subsidiaries’ countries require transactions to be denominated in  the local currencies. Albert has researched foreign currency risk and  knows that there is accounting exposure in accounting statements,  operating exposure in future cash flows, and transaction exposure in  outstanding obligations. Albert does not understand how these risks  apply to XYZ, Inc. under his proposal or if there are any mitigating  risk strategies available.

Albert requests you, as head of the risk management division, to  prepare a report that he can present to the board of directors on the  potential foreign currency risk if XYZ, Inc. expands sales into these  markets. XYZ, Inc.’s reporting currency is the U.S. dollar and the  subsidiaries would purchase the merchandise as inventory items.

  • For more information on corporate strategies regarding hedging foreign exchange risk, refer to Chapter 9 of Advanced Accounting.
