Step by Step Solution

Meaning of Disclosure of Principle

The full disclosure principle is meant to share critical and material budgetary data with the outside world. Since outsiders do not know the points of interest of the company's business deals, contracts, and advances, it is difficult to estimate the substance.

Explaining the reason for the disclosure  

Transactions between related parties are disclosed to guarantee that clients of financial statements understand the fundamental nature of certain exchanges. Since it is routinely difficult to legitimately separate financial material from related party transactions, disclosure is widely used in this area.

The disclosure is required by Holland to propose the purchase of a substantial portion of the company's common stock as well as the use of a Holland affiliate to act as a nutrition broker.

(Ratio Computations and Additional Analysis) Bradburn Corporation was formed 5 years ago through a public subscription of common stock. Daniel Brown, who owns 15% of the common stock, was one of the organizers of Bradburn and is its current president. The company has been successful, but it currently is experiencing a shortage of funds. On June 10, 2018, Daniel Brown approached the Topeka National Bank, asking for a 24-month extension on two $35,000 notes, which are due on June 30, 2018, and September 30, 2018. Another note of $6,000 is due on March 31, 2019, but he expects no difficulty in paying this note on its due date. Brown explained that Bradburn’s cash flow problems are due primarily to the company’s desire to finance a $300,000 plant expansion over the next 2 fiscal years through internally generated funds. The commercial loan officer of Topeka National Bank requested the following financial reports for the last 2 fiscal years
