Effects of derivative hedging on “Other Comprehensive Income” (SFAS No. 133)

Other comprehensive incomes are maintained while company involve into a foreign currency and cash flow hedge of its net investment. There are some effects that derivative hedging has on other comprehensive income:

Cash flow hedge of an existing liability

An interest rate swap (pays a fixed rate on a stated notional and receives a variable rate) to successfully convert variable-rate debt to a fixed rate would include the change in fair value of the swap in other comprehensive income. The unrealized loss or gain will be detached from other comprehensive income and incorporated in earning while interest will be documented on the debt. The other comprehensive income loss or gain will fine-tune (adjust) interest expenses to an amount equivalent to the fixed interest rate.

Cash flow hedge of a forecasted transaction

A futures contract to fix the sales price of an item or the future purchase will contain the change in fair value of the future contracts in other comprehensive incomes. The unrealized loss or gain will be detached from other comprehensive incomes and incorporated in earnings when the hedged item have an effect on earnings.

Foreign currency hedge of a net investment in a foreign operation

A forward contract entered into to sell the foreign currency of the foreign operation would hedge the net investment. That is, the net investment would decrease if the exchange rate decreases. Though, the forward contract will swell in value for the reason that the currency can be bought at a lesser amount than the locked-in selling price. Unrealized losses and gains on the forward contract will be incorporated in other comprehensive income. When the investment is liquidated, the changes in future contracts will be incorporated into other comprehensive incomes
