BP investments.
Stakeholders (and FROs):
Management (CFO, CEO, etc):
FRO: aggressive because they are trying to meet the demands of major
investors for strong performances. (Key work: strong performance “tied” to case). Also,
compensation is probably based on performances.
Investors: (two large Canadian pension funds are major investors)
FRO: conservative because they want to see worst-case scenario results
(maybe less likely and maybe aggressive)
Or FRO: aggressive because they want to see strong performance to offset
previous losses on other investments (i.e. BP)
Or FRO: neutral because they are likely to be a long-term
shareholder, and therefore interested in seeing the economic reality without bias.

provide the true picture of financial performance and position.

In general, the following conditions must be met for an asset (or 'disposal group') to be
classified as held for sale: [IFRS 5.6-8]

the asset is available for immediate sale
an active programme to locate a buyer is initiated
the sale is highly probable, within 12 months of classification as held for sale (subject to
limited exceptions)
the asset is being actively marketed for sale at a sales price reasonable in relation to its
fair value
actions required to complete the plan indicate that it is unlikely that plan will be
significantly changed or withdrawn
