1.Delphi Switch and Signal sold equipment to a Canadian
transportation company at a price of 150,000 Canadian dollars with
payment due in 60 days. On the date of sale the exchange rate was
1.50 Canadian dollars per U.S. dollar. Delphi decided to hedge the
risk of currency fluctuations by purchasing 150,000 Canadian
dollars with payment due in 60 days. If the exchange rate in 60
days is 1.25 Canadian dollars per U.S. dollar, Delphi Switch and
Signal will:
a. Recognize a net gain of $20,000 on the two transactions.
b. Recognize a $20,000 gain when it collects the receivable and
incur a $20,000 loss when it pays the liability.
c. Incur a $20,000 loss when it collects the receivable and
recognize a $20,000 gain when it pays the liability.
d. Incur a net loss of $20,000 on the two transactions.
2.Precision Instruments sold equipment to a British research group at
a price of 50,000 British pounds on December 1, 2000, with payment

1.Delphi Switch and Signal sold equipment to a Canadian
transportation company at a price of 150,000 Canadian dollars with
payment due in 60 days. On the date of sale the exchange rate was
1.50 Canadian dollars per U.S. dollar. Delphi decided to hedge the
risk of currency fluctuations by purchasing 150,000 Canadian
dollars with payment due in 60 days. If the exchange rate in 60
days is 1.25 Canadian dollars per U.S. dollar, Delphi Switch and
Signal will:
b. Recognize a $20,000 gain when it collects the receivable and
incur a $20,000 loss when it pays the liability.
He will collect 150,000/1.25=120,000 US$, thus gain of $20,000. He will loose the same amount on hedge.
