On November 1 of the current year, Patriot Inc. purchased a container of electrical components from its supplier in Japan. Patriot agreed to pay 15,000,000 ¥ in 90 days. The exchange rate on November 1 was $1 = 120 ¥. Patriot decided to hedge the transaction and entered into a 90 day forward contract to purchase yen at a cost of$1 = 125 ¥. The 60 day forward rate that would take Patriot to the December 31 fiscal year end was $1 = 127.50 ¥. On December 31, the spot rate was$1 = 118 ¥, and the 30-day forward rate was $1 = 122 ¥.
