CEO Lyle Nesbitt exclaims, ?How can actual operating income be roughly 13% of the static budget amount when there are so many favorable variances?? Requirements 1. Prepare a more informative performance report. Be sure to include a flexible budget for the actual number of DVDs bought and sold. 2. As a member of ReelTime?s management team, which variances would you want investigated? Why? 3. Nesbit believes that many consumers are postponing purchases of new movies until after the introduction of a new format for recordable DVD players.
