In accordance with ASC 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity,” the appropriate accounting for redeemable equity first depends upon a determination of whether the equity is currently redeemable or not currently redeemable. Shares that are currently redeemable should be recorded at redemption value. For shares that are not currently redeemable, the accounting guidance allows for changes in redemption value to be accreted from the initial issuance date to the earliest redemption date. This guidance also specifies that if the redemption value is less than the original issuance cost, the carrying amount of the redeemable common stock should not be less than the original issuance cost.



As of July 3, 2016, the fair market value of one share of PDC common stock was $13.70.  Based on the estimated fair value of the redeemable common stock at July 3, 2016, an ultimate redemption liability of approximately $88 million was determined. The redeemable common stock recorded book value as of July 3, 2016,  was $113 million. The change in fair value and accretion of redeemable common stock was $5.1 million for the six months ended July 3, 2016.



Based on the estimated fair value of the redeemable common stock at July 5, 2015, an ultimate redemption liability of approximately $90 million was determined. The redeemable common stock recorded book value as of July 5, 2015 was $121 million. The change in fair value and accretion of redeemable common stock was $5.9 million for the six months ended July 5, 2015.
