Question

Accounting for Decision Makers

 

 

 

 

 

Question #2

 

 

The following is budgeted information for the Samantha Corporation:

 

 

Product 1

 

 

Product 2

 

 

Annual production & sales

 

 

60,000

 

 

40,000

 

 

Projected selling price

 

 

$12

 

 

$18

 

 

Direct Production Cost Information

 

 

Materials (per unit)

 

 

$2

 

 

$4

 

 

Direct Labor (per unit)

 

 

$3

 

 

$6

 

 

Additional information:

 

 

Selling & administrative costs (a mixed cost) are budgeted to be $260,000 at the production and sales listed above. The variable component is $2 per unit (same for each product).

 

Manufacturing overhead costs (a mixed cost) are budgeted to be $246,000 at the production and sales listed above. The fixed component is $96,000. Each product uses the same amount of variable manufacturing overhead per unit.

 

Assuming the budgeted sales mix remains intact, how many units of each product does Samantha need to sell in order to break even?

 

 

 

Question #3

 

 

Consider the following information, prepared based on a capacity of 100,000 units:

 

 

Category

 

 

Cost per Unit

 

 

Variable manufacturing costs

 

 

$12.00

 

 

Fixed manufacturing costs

 

 

$3.00

 

 

Variable selling costs

 

 

$5.00

 

 

Fixed selling costs

 

 

$2.00

 

 

Capacity cannot be added in the short run and the firm currently sells the product for $30 per unit.

 

 

a) The company is currently producing 90,000 units per month. A potential customer has contacted the firm and offered to purchase 10,000 units this month only. The customer is willing to pay $24 per unit. Since the potential customer approached the firm, there will be no variable selling costs incurred. Should the company accept the special order? Why or why not? Be specific.

 

 

b) Assume the same facts as in part a, except that the company is producing 100,000 units per month. Should the company accept the special order? Why or why not? Be specific.

 

 

Question #4
