Question

Polaski Company manufactures and sells a single product called a Ret. Operating at capacity, the company can produce and sell 46,000 Rets per year. Costs associated with this level of production and sales are given below: Unit Total Direct materials $11 $506,000 Direct labor 7 322,000 Variable manufacturing overhead 2 92,000 Fixed manufacturing overhead 8 368,000 Variable selling expense 4 184,000 Fixed selling expense 3 138,000 Total cost $35 $1,610,000 The Rets normally sell for $70 each. Fixed manufacturing overhead is constant at $368,000 per year within the range of 25,000 through 46,000 Rets per year. 11.value: 1 points Requirement 1: Assume that due to a recession, Polaski Company expects to sell only 25,000 Rets through regular channels next year. A large retail chain has offered to purchase 4,800 Rets if Polaski is willing to accept a 11% discount off the regular price. There would be no sales commissions on this order; thus, variable selling expenses would be slashed by 75%. However, Polaski Company would have to purchase a special machine to engrave the retail chain's name on the 4,800 units. This machine would cost $9,600. Polaski Company has no assurance that the retail chain will purchase additional units in the future. Calculate the net increase/decrease in profits next year if this special order is accepted. (Omit the "$" sign in your response.)

The U.S. Army would like to make a one-time-only purchase of 4,800 Rets. The Army would pay a fixed fee of $1.72 per Ret, and it would reimburse Polaski Company for all costs of production (variable and fixed) associated with the units. Because the army would pick up the Rets with its own trucks, there would be no variable selling expenses associated with this order. If Polaski Company accepts the order, by how much will profits increase or decrease for the year? (Omit the "$" sign in your response.) Net in profits $ check my workeBook Linkreferences 13.value: 1 points Requirement 3: Assume the same situation as that described in Requirement (2) above, except that the company expects to sell 46,000 Rets through regular channels next year. Thus, accepting the U.S. Army's order would require giving up regular sales of 4,800 Rets. If the Army's order is accepted, by how much will profits increase or decrease from what they would be if the 4,800 Rets were sold through regular channels? (Input the amount as positive value.
