Valuation of Derivatives
Derivatives are widely used by listed companies for hedging and investment purpose (usually as a result of gaining protection while maintaining upside potential). On liability side, derivatives are usually involved as part of fund raising such as issuing convertible bonds and/or convertible preference shares.
Derivatives Derived from Contract Term(s)
Many companies do not have an active intention to gain exposure in derivatives. Their balance sheet still involves derivatives as a result of entering into various financing, business contracts and/or acquisition agreements. For example, profit guarantee provided by vendor will be a financial asset subject to fair value assessment. Depending on the mechanism of payouts, such guarantee contract can be a complicated financial derivative.
