investments (in subsidiaries/companies)...


Explanation:
... accounted for by/under the equity method

This is just an alternative to the above answer (and is used by Peugeot's rival Renault!!)

Here's what it actually means (it's a consolidation method in French accounting), definition by Sylvain
Méthode de comptabilisation d'une participation qui consiste, pour la société participante, à inscrire au prix coûtant sa participation dans la société dépendante et à augmenter ou diminuer ce montant pour tenir compte, dans la détermination de son bénéfice net, de sa quote-part des bénéfices réalisés (ou des pertes subies) et des dividends servis par la société dépendante après la prise de participation, compte tenu de toutes les régularisations qu'il y aurait lieu d'apporter à ces bénéfices et à ces pertes si les états financiers étaient consolidés.

securities expressed in terms of equity value


Explanation:
basically working from the previous answer.
Security: Common or preferred stock; a bond of a corporation, government, or quasi- government body.
Equity - The ownership interest of common and preferred stockholders in a company. Also refers to excess of value of securities over the debit balance in a margin account.

Bonds and debentures are usually carried on the books of the issuing company in terms of their par or face value.
