Let’s Discuss: Impact to Cost of Goods Sold (Source Case 6-1 Textbook)

Ever since he was a kid, Carl Montague wanted to be a pro football player. When that didnt work out, he found another way to channel his natural competitive spirit: He bought a small auto parts store in Kentucky that was deep in red ink (negative earnings). At the end of the year, he created ghost inventory by recording fake inventory purchases. He offset these transactions by adjustments to Cost of Goods Sold, thereby boosting profit and strengthening the balance sheet. Fortified with great financials, he got bank loans that allowed him to build up a regional chain of stores, buy a local sports franchise, and take on the lifestyle of a celebrity. When the economy in the region tanked, he could no longer cover his losses with new debt or equity infusions, and the whole empire fell like a house of cards.
