ABC;Company is a manufacturing firm that specializes in making cedar roofing and;siding shingles. The company currently has annual sales of around $1.2 million;a 25% increase from the previous year. The company has an aggressive growth;target of reaching $3 million annual sales within the next 3 years. The CEO has;been trying to find additional products that can leverage the current ABC;employee skillset as well as the manufacturing facilities.;As the controller of ABC Company, the CEO has come to you with a new;opportunity that he?s been working on. The CEO would like to use the some of;the shingle scrap materials to build cedar dollhouses. While this new product;line would add additional raw materials and be more time-intensive to;manufacture than the cedar shingles, this new product line will be able to;leverage ABC?s existing manufacturing facilities as well as the current staff.;Although this product line will require added expenses, it will provide;additional revenue and gross profit to help reach the growth targets. The CEO;is relying on you to help decide how this project can be afforded Provide;details about the estimated product costs, what is needed to break even on the;project, and what level of return this product is expected to provide.;In order to help out the CEO, you need to prepare a six- to eight-page;report that will contain the following information (including exhibits, but;excluding your references and title page). Refer to the accompanying Excel;spreadsheet (available through your online course) for some specific cost and;profit information to complete the calculations.;Final;Paper Spreadsheet;I.

Can this project be financed with current cash flow from the company?;Why or why not?;iv. If the company needs additional financing beyond what ABC Company can;provide internally (either now or sometime throughout the life of the project);how would you suggest the company obtain the additional financing, equity or;corporate debt, and why?;III. Product cost: ABC Company believes that it has an additional 5,000;machine hours available in the current facility before it would need to expand.;ABC Company uses machine hours to allocate the fixed factory overhead, and;units sold to allocate the fixed sales expenses. Bases on current research, ABC;Company expects that it will take twice as long to produce the expansion;product as it currently takes to produce its existing product.;a. What is the product cost for the expansion product under absorption and;variable costing?;b. By adding this new expansion product, it helps to absorb the fixed;factory and sales expenses. How much cheaper does this expansion make the;existing product?;c. Assuming ABC Company wants a 40% gross margin for the new product, what;selling price should it set for the expansion product?;d. Assuming the same sales mix of these two products, what are the;contribution margins and break-even points by product?;IV. Potential investments to accelerate profit: ABC company has the option;to purchase additional equipment that will cost about $42,000, and this new;equipment will produce the following savings in factory overhead costs over the;next five years;Year 1, $15,000;Year 2, $13,000;Year 3, $10,000;Year 4, $10,000;Year 5, $6,000;ABC Company uses the net-present-value method to analyze investments and;desires a minimum rate of return of 12% on the equipment.;a. What is the net present value of the proposed investment (ignore income;taxes and depreciation)?;b. Assuming a 5-year straight-line depreciation, how will this impact the;factory?s fixed costs for each of the 5 years (and the implied product costs)?;What about cash flow?;c. Considering the cash flow impact of the equipment as well as the;time-value of money, would you recommend that ABC Company purchases the;equipment? Why or why not?;V. Conclusion;a. What are the major risk factors that you see in this project?;b. As the controller and a management accountant, what is your;responsibility to this project?;c. What do you recommend the CEO do?;Writing the Final Paper;1. Must be six to eight double-spaced pages in length, and formatted;according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.;2.
