InvestmentPitch: Davidson & Company LLP Releases Second Video of Educational Series Covering Financial Issues Faced by Public Companies - Video Posted on Inves

Vancouver, BC, May 9, 2014 -. Davidson&Company LLP, a full-service chartered
accounting firm located in downtown Vancouver, has released the second
educational video in the new video series, called "Ask Bahar
", which deals with financial and accounting issues regularly encountered by
public companies. In the current video, Davidson&Company's Bahar Saadat and
Erez Bahar discuss convertible debentures.

A convertible debenture is a type of security issued by a company in return
for a loan to the company by an investor. It is different from a regular
debenture in that it can be converted into stock of that company, most
commonly at the option of the holder. By adding the convertibility option the
issuer pays a lower interest rate on the loan compared to if there was no
option to convert. In the event the company does well resulting in an
increased share price, it would be beneficial for the holder to convert the
debenture to common shares.

Under IFRS, the Company is required to disclose the value of the debt and
equity portions of the convertible debenture separately, this separation is
known as bifurcation. The debt is initially measured at its fair value based
on the present value of cash flows which takes into account the interest
expense, market interest rate and maturity date of the debt. Accretion
expense is recorded each period to bring the value of the bond to its face
value at the maturity date

Needless to say, accounting for convertible debentures is a complex area of
financial reporting and should be discussed with a professional accountant.
