    show as...

    Hi,

    Which one of the following sentences sounds better? If neither, how can I improve them further?

    1. Companies are required to show the proceeds from a convertible issue as liability and equity components.

    2. Companies are required to show the proceeds from a convertible issue as a liability component and equity component.

    Thanks,

    MG.

    What about
    Companies are required to show both the liability and equity components of
    the proceeds from a convertible issue.

    I really have no idea what this means, though.

    Barb_D,

    Thanks. Your sentence implies that the proceeds have those two components even before they are received. On the other hand, I am trying to convey that the proceeds, though received as one sum, are shown as separate amounts on the company's financial statements. Let us say the company receives $100 from a convertible issue. Then on its financial statements, the company shows $70 as the equity portion and $30 as the liability portion.

    Given this, how can we improve my original sentences?

    Thanks again,

    MG.

    How about:

    The proceeds from convertible issues are to be broken out as liability and equity components in the company accounts.
